The Godfather: Part II (1974) Directed and co-written by Francis Ford Coppola. John Cazale as Fredo Corleono and Al Pacino as Michael Corleone

Fredo: Sometimes I think I should’ve married a woman like you did. Like Kay. Have kids, have a family. For once in my life, be more like… Pop.
Michael: It’s not easy to be a son, Fredo. It’s not easy.
Fredo: You know, Mama used to tease me. She’d say, uh, “You don’t belong to me. You were left on the doorstep by gypsies.” Sometimes I think it’s true.

  1. Unquestionably one of the supreme masterpieces of the American cinema that all things considered has even eclipsed it’s predecessor and stands ass the definitive example of a sequel going above and beyond.

  2. I was thinking as I was rewatching this that it’s more ambitious than the original in just about every way, yet I can’t help thinking the original has its advantages. Normally I’d say without thinking that 2 surpasses 1, but now I’m not so sure.
