In 1972, Francis Ford Coppola crafted one of the greatest gangster movies of all time, with the help of one of the best ensemble casts of all time. Marlon Brando is ridiculously good and iconic as the Godfather and Al Pacino gives a levelled and calculating performance. The supporting cast is great too, Diane Keaton and James Caan in particular I really enjoy watching. However, I don't really like Talia Shire in this film, I think she is over the top and just unrealistic. This is by no means a perfect movie but it comes very close. The opening scenes of the wedding in particular are fascinating and its easy to like the Corleone family because of the class that is shown by them, despite the crimes being committed.
