I realised a year ago that I cheated by including ‘The Godfather’ Parts I and II as a single choice in the Personal Faves list, just so I could also shoehorn ‘Apocalypse Now’ in and not break the two-films-per-director rule.
I realise today that I’ve not so much cheated as sold myself (and the film!) short by trying to squeeze ‘The Godfather Part II’ into yesterday’s article. It deserves more thought, more consideration, more comment. I will revisit it next month.
It wasn’t personal, it was strictly laziness.
