Godfather, The (Part II)*

  • 1974 ----- color ----- 200 min ----- laserdisc
  • (Directed by Francis Ford Coppola; with Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro) This film proves unusual in actually being better than the original. The performances by Al Pacino as the younger don and Robert De Niro as the older in this film are dynamic and gripping. Cinematographer Gordon Willis superbly captures the turn-of-the-century period, applying a serigraphic tint to flashback scenes for a softer, richer look than the sharp image of the ongoing contemporary story.
