Our next series of films is going to be the crime series and we start with one of the most classic movies about American gangsters you can find, The Godfather! Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Talia Shire, James Caan, Robert Duvall and…you get the idea. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, this film is genuinely iconic. Even if you haven’t seen this movie, you’ve probably seen several dozen parodies of the film. Our newbie and sometime regular Barb Lind had somehow never seen the movie so we treat her to a first time with the Corleones.
Next up, we continue with he crime theme as we watch The Sting.
