      Wendy Ide Times (UK) This magnificent multigenerational mafia drama represents a benchmark not just in crime movies but in American cinema as a whole. Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Steven D. Greydanus Catholic World Report Now half a century old, Francis Ford Coppola's revered New Hollywood masterpiece has one of the best-known final shots in film history - but it almost had a much more Catholic ending. Apr 8, 2022 Full Review Jason Bailey The Playlist Skepticism of American exceptionalism is far more commonplace now than it was when The Godfather was first released. But the fragility of the American Dream was revealing itself as the illusion it had always truly been. Mar 19, 2022 Full Review Mark Johnson Awards Daily The Godfather works like a masterfully conducted orchestra, whose immaculate symphony is a meticulously crafted and extraordinarily integral thread in the fabric of cinema history. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage ... Villains and criminals that fulfill the American dream with complete disregard for the American way. A contradiction that engenders gods. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 24, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A cultural milestone. Rated: 4/4 Mar 26, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Arlene B It was so worth seeing The Godfather on the big screen. Obviously, this is a 5 Star movie. If you have never seen it, or it has been years since you have seen it, if it is ever playing in a theater near you, you should definitely see it in a theater. I was hoping to see that The Godfather Part 2 would also be shown in theaters, but so far it doesn't look like it is on the schedule. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review David S Fantastic Restoration by Paramount!!!
