      Maybe I'm slow but there were a lot of nuances I missed when I watched it the first time that I had to watch a second time to get. The plot is so thick with characters, references and plotlines that at least for me I had to watch it two or 3 times.
      In particular the relationships between the Corleone family and the other 5 families:

      "I didn't know until this day....it was Barzini all along!" ("wait...what? how did you know? all along what?")
      The bit about Connie's husband fighting with Connie as a means to draw Sonnie out to get assassinated escaped me.
      Also how they figured out Abe Vigoda was a traitor just for setting up a meeting confused me.

      But all in all great acting. (Pacino's eyes darting around in the restaurant scene...Duvall telling Brando that Sonny died etc....)

      Don't even bother watching Godfather III.....it's such a disappointment that it might just ruin your memories of the first two.

      Deep down I think Coppola has always had a hard time worrying about some duty in not making Italians look bad. You can see it in the first two: The Don doesn't believe in drug dealing. He fights for justice when our court systems fail. He helps old ladies keep their apartments...he only kills in self-defense etc....

      It would have been very easy for him to make Godfather III into a movie like Goodfellas or Casino. But deep down he didn't want to make Italians look bad..... so he made this whole movie about Italy and the Vatican that nobody in America could relate to or give a **************** about. It also was far removed from the history of organized crime in America. None of the human character development was there either.

      If he had just made an organized crime story set in modern day America it would have been fine.

          If you like Godfather the movie you should read the book. A GREAT read.

            I've seen part 1 and loved but never got around to actually watching the rest. I think I'll put that higher on my list thanks to this thread. Heat and casino are others I need to see as well and I got heat on blu ray and haven't watched it.

            Goodfellas is pretty awesome though. my favorite only cause i've seen it the most.

              ^HAHA ****************, yeah of course. Joe Peschi. ****************, I need some sleep. DeVito.... LOL. What's wrong with me?



              I'll look into Thief. Thanks for the tip.

              You ever saw Layer Cake? Again, something completely different, but also a very excellent crime movie that's often overlooked.


              Don't know Layer Cake. Will look when I get time. Thanks.

                        I read a book called "Murder machine". It's about these guys who the mafia used to hire to kill/torture people. Apparently, these guys enjoyed doing it and they were so crazy a lot of mafia families were actually too scared of them to hire them. They did things on par with what you see in that scene. Read it if you're into mob stories. I could barely handle it though, it's rough to get through in some parts.
