The Godfather: Part II
Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1974, 200 mins. DCP. With Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton. The second Godfather installment in many ways surpasses the emotional impact of the first film. Cinematogher Gordon Willis continues the painterly experiments in light and shadow he began with the original, shooting the flashback scenes in a glowing amber light that evokes a hazy sense of nostalgia.
