The Godfather 
The Godfather: Why It's Great
4/4 stars

This is how to make a gangster movie. Every single thing to do with it is absolutely top-notch, from writing and direction to casting and acting, and, let's not forget that wonderful score.

It's all very well my saying, in these general terms, that this film is great, and, you could be forgiven for thinking that I'm singing its praises because it's widely regarded as one of the finest films ever, but, why I think it's brilliant is firstly, that its characters are, unlike in other movies of its ilk, so richly drawn. They are human, they are flawed; they're more relatable than any other characters in crime movies. Also, we are taken into the family. The audience is not merely witnessing these people's lives, but, are made to feel part of them; we get to know these characters with an intimacy that is unprecedented. Consequently, this is not only the story of a crime family, but also a character study, an examination of the kind of people those involved in organised crime are on a psychological level.
