Little known fact: very few people wanted Al Pacino for Michael. Pretty much no one, other than Coppola, wanted him. But when Coppola pictured the scenes of Michael wandering the Sicilian countryside with his bodyguards, he saw Pacino’s face. Coppola eventually wore the execs down.

The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola. I think of this as my first experience of greek/Shakespearian style tragedy. Brilliant dark cinematography too.

The first two Godfather films are timeless. Perfect cast, great directing from Francis Ford Coppola, and you get to watch the rise and fall of Michael Corleone.
