The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★★

Part II of finally watching The Godfather at 22 years old.

Love how Coppola plays on the same plot beats from the last one, albeit with different characters, different ideologies and different motives driving them - the mirrored image of father and son, one self-made in the desire to protect the little people as he becomes a messiah for them, the other driven by power and strolling down the dark path.

Both of De Niro's assassination sequences in this - perfection.
