A CLASSIC ON POSITION ON POWER IN THE CRIMEWORLD
The film should be ranked first the films is in the second place of the world’s
foremost and best movies of all time on IMDB leaderboard. As a film deserves
this film perhaps the first place when devising and provides a deeper
understanding of the gangster and mafia life during the mid-1900s. In this film,
characterized by established actors like Al Pacino, Marlon Brando and James Caan
with a successful director Francis Ford Coppola, who only has Godfather trilogy as
his greatest work. It is also in these films where he continuously appears and
displays his greatest film work.
The film portrays the family honor, but above all the power that the greatest thing
a man can have. Francis Ford Coppola really tries to give depth to these characters and make us like them. The film’s second part creates a strong depth to these characters
where they encounter resistance in the form of relationship problems, family
problems, or external conflicts. This creates a Coppola strong points in the second
act where he constantly takes the film to new levels. For as soon as those violent
scenes are completed, it quickly over to a calmer dialogue scene.
Although it contains a lot of violent scenes, which is dark and do not use vulgar
violence that horror films would bring. With music as an underlying element that
permeates the film from beginning to end, when it clearly is trying to avoid the
cliché units or pitfalls that could have gone through. gives the film a clearer sense
than it otherwise could have done without the soundtrack.
Although it appeared to forty-four years ago, it is a classic that never comes to
release its glow. The compliment clearly their message throughout the entire film
as it keeps it centered and continuously dealing with this. Despite its slow pace so
as to live up to a cinematic masterpiece. It’s taking the time to tell this story where
each scene has a meaning and a coherence to the next. Many films tend to have a
high tempo and portray his story in the film where scenes have little meaning or
generate no further experience or creating it looks contracts to be expected. The
second part is the film’s core, where Michael Corleone takes the step forward and
take over the family business.
Al Pacino also shows which established actor he is, just like Marlon Brando, even
though he has less playing time compared with Pacino. It deals with the clear
themes of the importance of family, honor, and glory. The development of the
characters is not clear when it does not develop fully during the first part tells of
Don Corleone and Michael’s journey to power and the head of the family.
It is a film that ambiguity has anchored itself and left its place in film history, it
may deviate from the narrative structure as you are used to but it is to compliment
the person who films and the position of power it has in our social and cultural life.
