To begin with, it is based on Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel of the same title. It was nominated for eleven Oscars and was the winner of three (Best Picture, Best Screenplay Based on a Novel, and Best Actor for Marlon Brando).
Plan B
It'll make you feel nostalgic, sad, happy, upset, and anxious. Sometimes all at once. Never since Lawrence of Arabia has a film's score set the mood so well and, perhaps, nothing has ever set the standard since some 40 years later.

Every scene has a reason for being there, whether it's foreshadowing, plot exposition, showing a certain important emotion or feeling, offering new insights into a character or shedding light on an integral part of the gangster life.
