The Godfather Writer s: The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son. This sprawling epic was made classic by the filmmaking, the writing and the incredible acting performances across the board.
With a running time of three hours, it is an impressive feat to have not a single wasted scene in the entire film. I have three favorite moments in this film, all of which are tied to each other.
But more importantly, this is the moment Michael is completely and utterly honest with Kate about his family.
We see Michael still in his military service uniform, having done his part in protecting the interests of this country, and with no intention of joining the family business.
The next moment is when Michael comes to see Kate after their long separation with Michael being in Italy and he tells her that he has in-fact joined the family business and his full intention of making the Corleone family completely legitimate within five years.
He gives her one chance to ask him about his affairs and he blatantly lies right to her face. Is the honest exchange from the first of the three scenes mentioned previously.
|Movies with a Message: The Godfather () and The Godfather Part II () | GOD TV||Vito behaves like — and, in some ways, is — a family-oriented leader of his community, doing favors for the weak and punishing the wicked so long as it doesn't interfere with business.|
Luca Brasi held a gun to his head and my Father assured him that either his brains, or his signature would be on the contract. Kate is stunned silent.

Director: Francis Ford Coppola IMDb Plot Summary: The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son. Why I Think This Is A Classic 70’s Movie: The Godfather is a classic movie for any and all decades that just happened to be made in the 70’s.

Consistently ranked as one of the top three films by the American Film institute, this gangster film sits among the likes of Citizen Kane (), Lawrence of Arabia (), and the more recent Schindler’s List () (American).
