Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Francis Ford Coppola has made one of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment.
Fresh: In its blending of new depth with an old genre, it becomes that rarity, a mass entertainment that is also great movie art.
Fresh: The biggest achievement here is the establishment of mood and time.
Fresh: The Godfather is overflowing with life, rich with all the grand emotions and vital juices of existence, up to and including blood.
For Justice, we must go to Don Corleone...
With an all-star cast of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, James Caan, and Diane Keaton and a legendary director (Francis Ford Coppola), The Godfather to put it very simply, is one of the greatest movies of all time. The american film institute ranks it as its number 2 best film ever produced, second only to the Orsen Wells classic: Citizen Kane. However, in my opinion and in many peoples opinions, The Godfather is the most perfect movie ever made and the #1 movie ever. Also, to Josh Frierman of Plainview, it is 10,000,000 times better then The Usual Suspects. You simply must get the Godfather.
One of the greatest... horrible preview.
This preview gave away the entire plot! If you haven't watched the film yet, the preview will spoil the movie.
there can be no denying that this is the greatest piece of cinematography in america history
