Editorial Reviews

Review

"Part of the impressive Cambridge Film Handbooks series..." The Intelligencer Record & The Burlington County Times

Book Description

In six essays, written especially for this volume, The Godfather trilogy is reexamined from a variety of perspectives. Providing original analyses on the form and significance of Coppola's achievement, they demonstrate how the filmmaker revised the conventions of the American crime film in the Viet Nam era, his treatment of the capitalism of the criminal underworld and its inherent violence, the power struggles within Hollywood over the film, and the contribution of opera to the epic force and cinematic style of Coppola's vision of an American criminal dynasty.

If you want informative and scholarly perspectives on what are undeniably the greatest movies ever (at least Godfather I & II) by a living director, this book is exceptional. It examines the movies, Francis Ford Coppola, development history, key Hollywood players, the necessary hell and chaos to create artistic masterpieces, and the unique cinematic vision of these ground breaking films.

Had some useful articles for a college film course I had to take, but would not recommend just for a good read on the film making of the movie.

It was intriguing to read, but nothing new was included, it was all information I had already learned or read in previous books.

I find it striking that there are so many dumb people in the world. Like the person who wrote the review of this book and said "it's better than The Godfather...Mario Puzzo does an excellent job"! First, Editors Nick Browne & Horton Andrew wrote this book -- NOT MARIO PUZZO! Secondly, it analyzes the trilogy -- it's not an addition to the trilogy -- and thirdly, quit writing reviews about stuff you don't know. That's something I cannot understand, you write about something you know nothing about!

I could not stop turning the pages! I read & re-read the book, and I am still completly compelled with the Godfather! Much better than the movies! This is simply one of the best novels that has ever been written. It can hold its own among some of the greatest writers in history. Truly the defining novel of its genre. Mario Puzo has written the perfect novel and I for one will never forget his work.
