The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★½

I'm not taking the side that agrees this is better than The Godfather, but Godfather 2 is certainly more complex, more riskier, and with most certainty sweeping in scope. Witnessing the fall of Michael Corleone's leadership as Don threw me completely for a loop. I was not prepared for this film. By contrast, seeing the rise of Vito Corleone, in a beautiful undertaking by DeNiro, and strangely rooting for the decisions he makes based on his righteous moral belief.

Exquisite stuff here people.
