Putting the Corleone family under a microscope
19 November 2015 | by redryan64See all my reviews

FILMS ABOUT FILMS are a certain genre that has long been with us. Some are done as a sort of promotional tool, finished and released before the initial run of the subject film and meant to pique the public's anticipation and interest. We can think of examples of this type in RETURN TO RAINTREE COUNTY and THE MAKING OF SUPERMAN:THE MOVIE.

TODAY'S HONORED REVIEWEE does not fit into this category. Being that THE GODFATHER LEGACY was made nearly four decades after the original theatrical showing of THE GODFATHER, it must fit into another sub-genre classification.

THIS SORT OF production centers on certain very special and successful movies that have become a part of our culture. They are the sort movie that we can watch over and over and still enjoy the hell out of them! IN ANOTHER SENSE, forays into every minute aspect of a film become a sort of extended version of the movie revue column of the daily newspapers. In this case, the rampant subjectivity of personal opinion can render the film to be overly biased and, by its very nature, far less illuminating to we, the loyal fans.

IT IS OUR opinion that the production team has tactfully avoided any excesses in criticism and praise. The result is what we all crave; but so seldom realize. THE GODFATHER LEGACY is a well plotted examination of the great film series; which boldly and wisely brings interviews with those who participated in their making. They also included some expertise from the worlds of medical science and academia.

IN THE END the production is highly informative as well as being valued for its entertainment value. As an example of what we mean: This Iish Kid (the writer) never realized that Frank Pentangelli changed his testimony because he wouldn't want his brother to witness such betrayal.

BOTH SCHULTZ AND myself thought the brother from Sicily was a hostage of the Corleones. I guess I'll be an "Irisher" all my life!
