The film is beautifully written, it is quite complex with lots of sub plots to keep up with, and it is only now after a few viewings that I think I have come to fully appreciate just how good it is, I always knew it was great, but now I think it might just be the greatest.
So, if you're the kind of person that looks for great individual moments in films, you'll find it here, but if you want a cohesive story that deeply analyzes the film's characters and the environment it's set in, The Godfather will also completely satisfy you.
If The Godfather is ever anything more than a perfect film to me something about the way I view film will have to change drastically.
