The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★½

HOT TAKE: not as good as the first movie

The Godfather: Part II is definitely more sprawling and ambitious than its predecessor, the complexity of the narrative requires a lot more focus as an audience member, and it continues the story in interesting ways that feel perfectly justified, but the iconic feel of the first movie is substantially less present and the pacing is pretty uneven

one thing I'm very confused about is the fact that this film felt so conclusive so I have no fucking clue where they could possibly take these characters in the third one...
