The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

The Godfather.

What else needs to be said? What else can be said? A defining picture spawned from the American New Wave, Francis Ford Coppola has crafted one of the finest films ever made. Beyond the artistry, delicacy, honesty, and brutality, what struck me the most upon re-wathcing The Godfather was just how heartbreaking it is. The film's insights on the cyclical nature of violence and the burdens of legacy, both of which are bound to an inevitable future, are some of the most poignant and tragic I have ever seen.
