In my opinion, the first Godfather is one of the best films ever made:


Personal Lessons

These are some personal lessons I learned from the film, and what I loved:

  1. I love how in the Mafia, there is a different code of ethics. Lesson: There are no ‘ultimate’ form of ethics. Even honor and respect is different in the Mafia world.
  2. “A man who doesn’t spend time with his family isn’t a real man.” – Vito Corleone (original Godfather)
  3. Simple cinematography is generally best: No super fancy cinematography here, but the simplicity is what makes it strong.
  4. Integration of newspapers is good for story-telling.
  5. I loved seeing the personal transformation of Michael Corleone from the beginning of the film until the end. The ending scene with all the Mafia guys kissing the hand of Michael Corleone (while the doors close on his wife, Kay) is one of the best endings in cinema.

Anyways, the film is a perfect 10/10 for me. 

The Second Godfather is very good (probably a 9/10), and the last Godfather isn’t nearly as good as the first two, but I still give it a 8/10 (all three are worth watching).
