NIACW 164 The Godfather

The Godfather is mandatory viewing for fans of cinema and a great example of the theme: men become their father. The pacing is deliberate (slow in comparison to more recent films) but the depth and richness is impossible to deny. In housekeeping the brothers discuss: 1970’s race relations featuring Howard Cosell and Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder, the Rio Olympics, and murder.
