Saturday, December 9

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
Starring Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Sofia Coppola

(1990) 35mm. Approx. 161 min. 

"THE RICHEST NARRATIVE MOVIES HAVE TO OFFER. Francis Ford Coppola took Mario Puzo’s pulp novel and darkened it with Nixonian paranoia and the power of political back rooms.”
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out 

Reviews

“The daring of Part II is that it enlarges the scope and deepens the meaning of the first film. Visually, Part II is far more complexly beautiful than the first, just as it’s thematically richer, more shadowed, fuller.”
– Pauline Kael 

“One of the saddest movies ever made, a tale of loss, grief and absolute loneliness, an unflinching stare into the darkest moral abyss.”
– Tom Huddleston, Time Out (London)
