Pacino’s intense and tightly-wrapped performance as clean-cut war hero Michael Corleone, ambivalently rejoining his Mafia clan and slowly drawn deeper into its dealings, instantly inducted him into the 1970s superstar vanguard. Coppola’s crime epic is at once a rich family saga, a potent metaphor for American business, and the quintessential New Hollywood reinvention of classic genre with modern worldliness and technique.
