Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1972, 175 mins. 35mm. With Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Sterling Hayden. The granddaddy of contemporary crime films remains one of Hollywood’s greatest works of modern storytelling. With this first part of the multilayered Corleone saga, a violent allegory of American industry, Coppola instantly became a cinematic titan, Brando found a colossal role he would always be remembered for, Pacino became a bona fide movie star, and Caan (in his only Academy Award–nominated performance) stole the show as Sonny, the tetchy, combustible id of the family. It is gripping from the first frame to last, with exquisite visual texture courtesy of cinematographer Gordon Willis.
