THE GODFATHER (Film Theatrical Release USA 1972)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

The Godfather—
masterpiece of the great movie collection—depicts the gruesome reality of gangster life when large egos are stepped on and when interpretation of personal intent goes awry. The Godfather performs very well for the mature adult audience and marks itself as a terrific study film for academia.
