(Francis Ford Coppola, US 1990, 162 min., 35mm)
Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo do the impossible by continuing the saga of the Corleone family with inventive brilliance. Twenty years have passed and the family is poised for legitimacy, with Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) now receiving a major honor from the church for his munificence. Alas, Michael confesses his sins but finds that his past is inescapable. With Pacino, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Andy Garcia, Eli Wallach, and Joe Mantenga heading the stellar cast, Coppola embarks on the final leg of his cinematic journey, concluding his masterful trilogy with bravura. "Just when I thought that I was out, they pull me back in."
