REVIEWS:





"Francis Ford Coppola has made one of the most brutal
and moving chronicles of American life ever designed
within the limits of popular entertainment. ....
The Godfather...is a superb Hollywood movie. .... It's
the gangster melodrama come of age, truly sorrowful and
truly exciting...scaring the delighted hell out of us while
cautioning that crime doesn't (or, at least, shouldn't) pay."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; March 16, 1972




ROGER EBERT'S 1972 REVIEW:




ROGER EBERT'S 1997 REVIEW:



"Although the movie is three hours long, it absorbs us so
effectively it never has to hurry. There is something in the
measured passage of time as Don Corleone hands over his reins
of power that would have made a shorter, faster-moving film
unseemly. Even at this length, there are characters in relationships
you can't quite understand unless you've read the novel. Or perhaps
you can, just by the way the characters look at each other."

-- Roger Ebert; 1972
