The Godfather (Coppola, 1972): Screen on the Green, 10.30pm

This 35mm screening is part of a 70s season screening from prints. The Godfather also screens on March 16th at 10.30am. Details here.

Chicago Reader review:
The ultimate family film. Francis Ford Coppola gives full due to the themes of clannish insularity that made Mario Puzo's novel a best seller, though his heart seems to be with Al Pacino's lonely, willful isolation. This 1972 feature is sharp, entertaining, and convincing—discursive, but with a sense of structure and control that Coppola hasn't achieved since.
