“One of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
An undisputed classic and still one of the most acclaimed and popular films of all-time, The Godfather feels just as fresh and groundbreaking today as it did in 1972. The relatively untested young filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola battled the studio every step of the way as he transformed Mario Puzo’s pulp bestseller into an impossibly rich, deeply personal meditation on family, power, violence and the harsh realities of the American Dream. Filled with some of film history’s most iconic and imitated moments (Brando and the orange peel, “take the cannoli,” and that infamous horse’s head, to name just a few), The Godfather has embedded itself in American popular culture in ways that few other films have, pleasing both audiences and critics alike, and becoming that true rarity: a massive, blockbuster entertainment that is also great movie art. Featuring Oscar-winner Marlon Brando in his immortal role as the ultimate family patriarch, Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather also contains a “who’s who” of legendary ‘70s performers, including Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, John Cazale and newcomer Al Pacino (in his third feature film appearance) as youngest son Michael, who is drawn ever deeper into the family business. Whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth time experiencing The Godfather, it’s impossible to not be moved by one of the greatest films ever made. (Dir. by Francis Ford Coppola, 1972, USA, 175 mins., Rated R)
