Tony, Trisha, and Frank break open a bottle of Francis Coppola’s Pinot Noir and revisit his film The Godfather on its 50th Anniversary. In this movie review/podcast they will talk about all the things that still make it a classic like the amazing visual storytelling they achieve with the camera work, the iconic performances by the cast that all became some of the most famous actors, and the amazing script based off the book by Mario Puzo.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, this mob drama, based on Mario Puzo’s novel of the same name, focuses on the powerful Italian-American crime family of Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando). When the don’s youngest son, Michael (Al Pacino), reluctantly joins the Mafia, he becomes involved in the inevitable cycle of violence and betrayal. Although Michael tries to maintain a normal relationship with his wife, Kay (Diane Keaton), he is drawn deeper into the family business.
