Francis Ford Coppola संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 1972

Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Godfather

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.
