Latest Review: The Godfather by Mario Puzo

I was expecting something else. People told me, completely straight faced, that Mario Puzo’s The Godfather was a masterpiece. At work, my boss took me aside to tell me – in hushed tones like I was being inducted into the Masons – that it would be the last book I’d ever need to read. 616 more words

A somewhat revisionist look at "The Godfather" trilogy

I rewatched the Godfather trilogy in three nights. I think the first is as great as ever. Pacino has as much or more screen time as Brando in the first one, but would not get my vote in a one-on-one contest. 634 more words

271. The Godfather: Part II

★★★★

“The Godfather” is a better movie than “The Godfather: Part II.” The only reason we are able to appreciate the second one so much is because the first laid down so much foundation for storytelling, where we already know who these characters are, their internal squabbles and external killings, and a sense of what they’ve sacrificed and forsaken in order to get to where they are. 625 more words
