Coppola, melding old-school craftsmanship with youthful bravado, built an astonishing picture around these actors. There are some great movies you want, or need, to see only once or twice in a lifetime, but The Godfather stands up to repeated viewings, revealing yet more riches from the shadows each time.

Both [Citizen Kane and The Godfather] are melancholy and wistful about their conviction that corruption is an inescapable part of American life in general and The American Dream in particular, and maybe I wouldn’t mind this attitude quite so much if its metaphysics weren’t so glib and absolute in its defeatism.

Gordon Willis’s brilliant cinematography—Rembrandt by way of Manhattan—made it acceptable for studio-made color films to be as shadowy and moody as the black & white noirs had been earlier. Where would classic paranoiac thrillers be without that added palette? Its flowing, epic structure, courtesy of Mario Puzo’s screenplay and Coppola’s subtle, no-nonsense direction, remains a model of classic storytelling.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Der Pate

    I can't believe 1 MUBI viewer gave this film only 2 stars. "What have I ever done to make you disrespect me in this way?"

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Der Pate

    I always think I don't really know The Godfather because I just remember the famous scenes. Then I look and realize it's *all* famous scenes. But to know the film is to see that it's as much a piece of popular entertainment as any Hollywood movie. It leaves very little unsaid, and its Romantic-American gangster morality play is actually rather uncomplicated. So it's the sum of its parts—but those parts are perfect.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Der Pate

    Existing in a gray area of hyperbole and the best dark melodrama of all time, occupying the same territory of mobster glorification and evil-heartedness for an emotional pull more distressing than giving a full opinion. Only the primal emotion of its broad character arcs/drama and its mob-hit scenes that are more a surprise than suspenseful, aside from two turning-point ones with Pacino, are lukewarm elements.

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Der Pate

    Gorgeous operatic sweep in both visual panache and familial wrangling answered in Kensington Gore. Rota’s score captures ethnicity and grandeur; Willis’s photography, earthily nostalgic. Surely the successor to Visconti and a more convincing modern opera than that found on stage. The macroscopic view on the why and wherefore of American hegemony is fascinatingly revealing - it’s not pretty but it sure is beautiful.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Der Pate

    I've gotten sick of the Godfather movies. I realize I shouldn't be reviewing them, but sometimes that's what happens to a movie that is talked about too much. I'm just sick of the glamorization of gangsters. I didn't watch 'The Sopranos', and I refuse to watch 'Narcos'.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Der Pate

    So... this why they call it one of the best films ever made. The running time was way easier to endure than I expected. From the acting, to the script, soundtrack and astonishingly beautiful cinematography, the ultimate mob saga is, above everything else, a family drama and it was great to see the fall of Don Corleone's reign and Michael rising as the new family leader. So excited for parts II and III.

  • Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Der Pate

    The highlight of Hollywood's Golden Age. The film is like a modern Greek Tragedy, and features several of the best performances in cinematic history. Nobody should spend their life not knowing the genius of this film.

  • Dave's rating of the film Der Pate

    With a movie that has acquired the reputation of The Godfather, it’s easy to take for granted what a masterpiece it is. After seeing it innumerable times, hearing the most famous lines repeated to the point of becoming clichés, and suffering through countless imitators that never manage to approach the brilliance of Coppola’s 1972 treasure, it’s easy to forget just how engrossing this three-hour opus truly is.
