The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

From the first 5 minute alone, Marlon Brando’s performance as Don Vito Corleone hooked me in. Everything you’ve ever heard about Godfather is true. It’s a somber, slow look into the passing the torch of generations in the mob. Brando’s amazing, but what really surprised me was how little he was actually used. The film is really about Michael Corleone’s progression from Army man who wants nothing to do with the family business to becoming to new Don through circumstances bigger than himself, all captured well through Al Pacino’s amazing performance. So yeah, Godfather is one the greatest movies ever made. Hats off to you Coppola.
