Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia masterpiece stars Marlon Brando in an Oscar-winning performance as the aging patriarch of an organised crime dynasty handing control of the empire to his reluctant son, Michael Corleone (Al Pacino). When a rival gang wants to impede on the Corleone’s territory, family duties will shape Michael into the leader that is demanded of him. Co-stars James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Sterling Hayden and Richard S. Castellano. In addition to Brando's Oscar for Best Actor, The Godfather's other big wins at the 1973 Academy Awards included Best Picture and Best Screenplay.

Forget the fact that this is a classic - just watch it and you'll see why. Amazing script, cinematography, performances, direction... It's the greatest American family drama of the 1970s. Yes it's glossy and not the gritty realism required to convey "real" violence - but Coppola is going for metaphor, art and... well, something bigger than mere reality here. Wonderful stuff!
