SCREENING

The Godfather

Ongoing

Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1972, 175 mins. With Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton. The granddaddy of contemporary crime films remains one of Hollywood’s greatest works of modern storytelling. With this first part of the multilayered Corleone saga, a

violent allegory of American industry, Coppola instantly became a cinematic titan, Brando found a colossal role he would always be remembered for, and Pacino became a bona fide movie star.

It is gripping from first frame to last, with exquisite visual texture courtesy of cinematographer Gordon Willis.

Free with Museum admission.
