The Godfather: Part II (1974) - ickleReview (DVD)

Majestic sequel to Scorsese's gangster saga, following in parallel the early career of Vito Corleone (Robert DeNiro) and the mid-life of his son Michael (Al Pacino) forty years later. The emphasis in this one is not so much on the gangster's life of crime and violence, but on Italian-American notions of the family and honour, and the ironical isolation of the head of the family.

Nugget: the best of the trilogy?

  1. Rewatched this again over a couple of days (4-5 May) and listened to the accompanying "Rewatchables" podcast. Still like it and want to watch it again someday.
