Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Throughout his long, wandering, often distinguished career Francis Ford Coppola has made many films that are good and fine, many more that are flawed but undeniably interesting, and a handful of duds that are worth viewing if only because his personality is so flagrantly absent. Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Godfather films, a series that has dominated and defined their creator in a way perhaps no other director can understand. Coppola has never been able to leave them alone, whether returning after 15 years to make a trilogy of the diptych, or re-editing the first two films into chronological order for a separate video release as The Godfather Saga. The films are our very own Shakespearean cycle: they tell a tale of a vicious mobster and his extended personal and professional families (once the stuff of righteous moral comeuppance), and they dared to present themselves with an epic sweep and an unapologetically tragic tone. Murder, it turned out, was a serious business. The first film remains a towering achievement, brilliantly cast and conceived. The entry of Michael Corleone into the family business, the transition of power from his father, the ruthless dispatch of his enemies--all this is told with an assurance that is breathtaking to behold. And it turned out to be merely prologue; two years later The Godfather, Part II balanced Michael's ever-greater acquisition of power and influence during the fall of Cuba with the story of his father's own youthful rise from immigrant slums. The stakes were higher, the story's construction more elaborate, and the isolated despair at the end wholly earned. (Has there ever been a cinematic performance greater than Al Pacino's Michael, so smart and ambitious, marching through the years into what he knows is his own doom with eyes open and hungry?) The Godfather, Part III was mostly written off as an attempted cash-in, but it is a wholly worthy conclusion, less slow than autumnally patient and almost merciless in the way it brings Michael's past sins crashing down around him even as he tries to redeem himself. --Bruce Reid

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Switching to Blu-Ray For. Dec 2 2008
By Ryan M
Format:Blu-ray
This full frame-by-frame restoration is beautiful. A damaged master copy had been the main culprit of a poor transfer to DVD/video originally. This transfer is not just a digitally cleaned up version of that master, but in some cases they used a better quality negative. The old version had murky dark scenes and washed-out bright scenes like the opening wedding scene. It was terrible. This version fixes all that and is just beautiful in HD. The Godfather the way it was meant to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coppola's legacy enclosed with others July 18 2004
Format:DVD
While the original film ranked #2 on the AFI's list of 100 Greatest Movies (#1 being Citizen Kane), many film buffs, afficionados, and audiences believed that the first Godfather film deserves that #1 spot. How many people do you know who know some of those famous quotes like, "I'm gonna' make him an offer he can't refuse," or "Never take sides against the family again, ever..." A few maybe? Or perhaps you grew up in an Italian family like mine and your father can translate the Italian for you while you watch? Now how many people can quote Citizen Kane beyond, "Rooooosebuuuud...."
Despite the excellence of the first film, it is my opinion that Godfather part 2 delves deeper into the family, more into the two-toned life that Michael Corleone orchestrates between the family business and his family. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the relationship he cultivates between himself and Hyman Roth (wonderful performance by Lee Strasberg), cementing the old adage that you keep your friends close and your enemies closer. On the surface they are friends, behind closed doors they are co-conspirators, between each other they are close friends and confidants. Beneath it all, in the depths of each man's heart, they are mortal enemies, Corleone ultimately the victor. The whole movie is a mounting tension between the two, reaching heights as when Hyman fumes over the death of a great man, Mo Green, whom Corleone had killed in the first film. In the end, Hyman becomes just another victim, mowed down by a Corleone footman.
The court proceedings are shot in a way that transmits the claustrophobia and morose tedium of the justice system back in the days of McCarthyism (the eras align somewhat, both post-war 1950's).

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless filmmaking* July 23 2005
By Jaime
Format:DVD
I'm not quite sure if it's possible to surpass THE GODFATHER series in terms of pure artistic beauty. The imagery is wrought with the emotions of the film and the characters, the Italian-language moments are scripted well and interjected at the best times, and the acting (among other things such as the directing and cinematography) is superb. It's a travesty, it really is, that Al Pacino never won an Oscar for these films. The extras, including commentaries, are very well done and don't ruin the integrity of the film, as so many DVD extras often seem to do.
I've loved these films since I was a little girl; even then, I was able to discern the circumstances and fabulousness of the characters. This is due to Francis Ford Coppola's unceasing vision. Although Part III is clearly the least of the trio, it is the necessary conclusion that the series needs. Perhaps if it had been brought to the screen sooner after Part II, the vision would have been less interrupted. However, all three are remarkably well done -- I hate to repeat myself, but nothing surpasses THE GODFATHER.

5.0 out of 5 stars "this my friend, is an offer you can't refuse!" Oct. 13 2001
By J. Lovins TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If you were sitting in a dark room, could not see a thing and "THE GODFATHER-WALTZ" started to play, you would immediately associate this with this collection, and you'd by correct...probably one of the most recognizable themes ever written...not to mention the "LOVE THEME FROM THE GODFATHER", so beautiful and haunting had universal appeal, our composer Nino Rota most certainly outdid himself with this score.
Director Francis Ford Coppola's delivers a masterpiece, based on Mario Puzo's best selling book...an outstanding cast even more realized today than then ~ Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Richard Castellano, John Cazle, Lee Strasberg, Eli Wallach and Sterling Hayden embroiled within "The Godfather Saga", dramatic acting at it's best.
The full-length Audio Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, Widescreen Enhanced for 16:9 TVs, Closed Captioned, and that's on just the first four discs...on the final disc (Disc 5), "The Godfather Bonus Material" with over three hours of exclusive features highlighting the many Cast Rehersals, Additional Scenes, Documentary on the Making of the Godfather, The Music of the Godfather (featuring Nino Rota and Carmine Coppola) plus other extra's to numerous to mention...but you get the general idea, this is a "film-buffs-treasure"...something that only comes along once in a lifetime, do me a favor...don't pass this up...this DVD Collection is in a CLASS BY ITSELF!
You might want to pick up "The Godfather Trilogy" (SSD-1121) on the Silva America label, would make an excellent companion for your "Godfather DVD Collection", please check out my reviews on amazon.com/music.
