The Godfather, an unstoppable summit

The main lesson from this ranking based on your notes is that Francis Ford Coppola alone cannibalizes three places.

The Godfather, Part 2 therefore takes 3rd place on the podium. , with an average of 4.466 out of 5.

An Al Pacino who, in his own words, did not feel more desired by the studio, and who still considers his performance in Coppola’s film as the most difficult of his immense career.

We can’t say that The Godfather Part 2 is superior to The Godfather, which quite simply remains one of the greatest films ever made. But without a doubt, The Godfather II is one of the best sequels ever made.

Coppola’s genius is not only to show us a Michael Corleone in a descent into hell, alienating and destroying all those who love him, but above all to show us in Flash Back the youth and the rise of his father, Vito Corleone, powerfully played by Robert de Niro at the top, crowned by the Oscar for Best Supporting Role.
