Pete Talbot’s review published on Letterboxd:
There just aren't other movies that look like the first two Godfather movies. It isn't the use of light, it's the use of shadow that's so black that it is like like light itself. Al Pacino's character slips deeper and deeper into his own personal darkness that he dresses as a New York version of a dark hat cowboy. He is dressed in black sitting, in black rooms and his dark eyes sink deeper back into his head as though his soul is a black hole sucking his life back in on itself.
Fredo's speech to save himself to Michael about how smart he really is so pathetic, and it sure sounds a lot like Trump's weekend tweets defending his own intelligence.
