4/4

 

The Godfather 
The Godfather
4/4 stars

There is no such thing as a perfect film, but this is the closest anyone has ever come before.Oscar-worthy performances are given by Duvall, Cann, and of course the great Marlon Brando, who won Best Actor for his portrayal of Don Vito Corleone.Everything from the costume design, to the art direction, from the eerie lighting, to the now infamous score by Nino Rota was all beautifully executed.Although this made most of the cast members stars overnight, it is Al Pacino who shines brighter than the rest as the hesitant, yet loyal son who gets thrust into the family business.In my opinion he should have won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Michael Corleone, and if not him then James Caan for his performance as Santino.The theme of family and its importance has never been so perfectly captured on film as it was here.The fact that it was only nominated for a total of 11 Oscars is a bit of an injustice, especially since it only won 3 of those, but it definitely deserved the ones that it did win.If there was ever any evidence needed to prove that film is indeed an art form, this film is that evidence.Francis Ford Coppola has truly created his masterpiece with this adaptation of Mario Puzo's literature.Be sure to view this piece of cinematic history at least once before you die, for it is the greatest film that has ever been made.
