The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★★

Of course I’m blown away at the stunning visuals, the emotional thematic mastery of story telling on display. But for the first time rewatching this I found myself asking “Is it possible the sequel is actually better than the original”?  Knowing full well the former pioneered new roads into the gangster genre we still see bearing fruit today. Could it be a continuation, a launching point with which new heights were reached because of the greatness surrounding Coppola’s brave, ambitious first mating call between generations of audiences and filmmakers? Without the first the second couldn’t exist, sure. At least not in this context. But is it possible? What do you think?
