Another A+ director especially for the Godfather 1 and 2 and especially for the opening scene in Apocalypse Now.

Rating the Godfather anything less than a ten seems insane, but perhaps we have a different set of criteria for great cinema. I still would like to promote One From the Heart, which along with Apocalypse Now is his most visually stunning film, and the last of his independent productions.

"Rating the Godfather anything less than a ten seems insane."

Why do you say that?

Because I think it's probably next to Citizen Kane as the greatest film of all time.

@WP

Is that your own opinion or did a whole host of critics tell you that?

Regardless of how others view the film, I'd love to hear your thoughts on The Godfather, Anasazie.

Don't you think it's already had too much attention?

I'm guessing you'd rather not elaborate?
