The Godfather: An Epitome of Prestige & Elegance

I remember the first time I was really pressured into doing something by my peers was watching good films, exploring cinema rather. They also insisted on reading books back then but watching cinema was a lot easier than reading a nearly 500-pages-long book.

The initial films I saw involved a lot of action between the cops and the gangsters, including a cold war between the good cops and the bad cops. This seemed really fun. I watched a 6 to 10 hours long marathon of such films and emerge from my den, unshaken.

However, this one film I watched in my teens has been on the top of my list of favourites. It’s Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather (1972).
