This week's Cinematical Movie Club pick is a little bit different. Rather than picking a film I've seen and appreciated, I wanted to dig into something I've never seen, but should have: Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather. Making it even more appropriate: This past livetweet Wednesday marked the 38th anniversary of the film's release.
There's no excuse for me having missed AFI's third greatest film of all time, other than life's regular twists. There are lots of occasions where I almost saw it, but plans would always fall through, the timing was off, or everyday busyness won out over fandom. But now I'm glad. The funny thing is, I think the newbie mistakes that marred Wednesday night's livetweet made it all the better.
