Godfather is an obvious classic

by PittsburghClint on 12/18/2010

Godfather 1 and 2 obviously need no review. If you haven't seen them by now, you should probably move out of whatever cave you are living in. Godfather 3, eh well, we all do things we wish we could take back. Read More

Product Overview

With legendary director Francis Ford Coppola at the helm and spectacular performers filling every role, THE GODFATHER series churned out three of the best-loved and most critically-acclaimed films of all time. THE GODFATHER: THE COPPOLA RESTORATION includes each of these three masterpieces.

THE GODFATHER: Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone's family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered ten Academy Award nominations, and won three including Best Picture of 1972.

THE GODFATHER - PART II: This brilliant companion piece to the original THE GODFATHER continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Director Francis Ford Coppola tells two stories in PART II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who helped make THE GODFATHER, Coppola has produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made. Robert De Niro won an Oscar; the film received six Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1974.

THE GODFATHER - PART III: One of the greatest sagas in movie history continues. In this third film in the epic Corleone trilogy, Al Pacino reprises the role of powerful family leader Michael Corleone. Now in his 60's, Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)...but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. Francis Ford Coppola directs Pacino, Garcia, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Eli Wallach, Sofia Coppola, Joe Mantegna and others in this exciting, long-awaited film that masterfully explores the themes of power, tradition, revenge and love. Seven Academy Award nominations for 1990 were the result, including Best Picture.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review [I] Rarely can it be said that a film has defined a genre, but never is that more true than in the case of The Godfather. Since the release of the 1972 epic (which garnered ten Academy Award nominations and was named Best Picture), all "gangster movies" have been judged by the standards of this one...If The Godfather was only about gun-toting Mafia types, it would never have garnered as many accolades. The characteristic that sets this film apart from so many of its predecessors and successors is its ability to weave the often-disparate layers of story into a cohesive whole. Any of the individual issues explored by The Godfather are strong enough to form the foundation of a movie. Here, however, bolstered by so many complimentary themes, each is given added resonance. The picture is a series of mini-climaxes, all building to the devastating, definitive conclusion...Rarely does a film tell as many diverse-yet-interconnected stories. Strong performances, solid directing, and a tightly-plotted script all contribute to The Godfather's success. This motion picture was not slapped together to satiate the appetite of the masses; it was carefully and painstakingly crafted. Every major character - and more than a few minor ones - is molded into a distinct, complex individual. Stereotypes did not influence Coppola's film, although certain ones were formed as a result of it.

Quotes
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle [I] ...a landmark in American cinema...an enduring, undisputed masterpiece.
Find-A-Video [I] In Coppola's brilliant crime saga, the director transformed the lowly gangster drama into an American epic capable of rivaling the western.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader [III] A provocative and stirring climax to the Corleone saga, as well as an autonomous work that sometimes shows Coppola at his near best.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide [I] Pulp fiction raised to the highest level; a film of epic proportions, masterfully done, and set to Nino Rota's memorable music.
Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times [III] ...a work of high ensemble talent and intelligence, gorgeously mounted and crafted...
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle [III] ...lushly photographed, brilliantly acted and wonderfully entertaining...
Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star [II] A rare sequel to a great film that recaptures and expands upon the mastery of its predecessor.
Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com [II] A rarity: a sequel as great as its A+ predecessor. A powerhouse film.
Variety [II] Al Pacino again is outstanding as Michael Corleone, successor to crime family leadership.
