The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★½

there is something about these films that feels so personal to me. i love all the characters immensely and my heart breaks for all of them. the world is so rich. it feels lived in and for some weird reason it gives me comfort. michael might be one of, if not my favorite fictional character of all time, and watching his life fall apart because of his mistakes breaks my heart. the ending scene with michael alone at the table and the rest celebrating in the other room will haunt me forever i think. i always think i know everything there is to know about these films, but on every rewatch i catch something new, and it just goes to show how wonderful and intricate the story of the corleone family is. i’ll always hold it close to my heart.
