GODFATHER - PART II, THE

A wholly different experience than Coppola's GODFATHER. Less mythic, but much more epic, both in emotion and scope. In one of the most ambitious sequels ever made Coppola begins to parallel the life and transformation of Michael Corleone to that of his father, Vito. The dual storylines allow THE GODFATHER, PART II to have a rich backstory that both informs and enlightens. Things also begin to get political as Corleone is put on trial by the U.S. government. Coppola weaves all of these narrative threads together masterfully and achieves the unbelievable task of not only being better, but being a completely different film than the original (R.J. LaForce).
