An exquisite film..., 23 December 2001

Truly one of the best films I've ever seen. The acting in this film is top notch...the direction perfect in its subtleties. This is one of those rare achievements in film. If you liked American Beauty, take a look at its spiritual predecessor. You won't be disappointed.

A lukewarm finale to the Godfather saga., 23 April 2000

Francis Ford Coppola was obviously blinded by paternal instinct when he decided to cast his daughter (Sophia Coppola) in the role of Mary Corleone. While the acting in G3 was passionate for the most part (especially by Pacino and Andy Garcia), Coppola comes across as a dead fish in comparison. I found myself fully distracted every time her face "graced" the screen. Sadly, Coppola was not the only problem with this movie. The utterly contrived plot, as well as the notable absence of Robert Duvall, sink what should be an unsinkable movie franchise. Truly, not a fitting ending to the Godfather trilogy.
