THE GOD­FA­THER 11.20PM, ABC ★★★★★

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

Snap­ping off the twigs of an Ital­ian- Amer­i­can fam­ily tree one by one, direc­tor Fran­cis Ford Cop­pola paints an unfl inch­ing pic­ture of how ab­so­lute power can cor­rupt ab­so­lutely. The big tri­fecta of what makes a good fi lm great – di­rec­tion, script and per­for­mance – achieves the max­i­mum pay­off pos­si­ble in The God­fa­ther ( and The God­fa­ther 2). Sim­ply un­touch­able.
