Melancholy, powerful and brilliant
Francis Ford Coppola really shook the movie world in 1990 when he chosen to direct a final part in the larger-than-life Corleone saga, 16 years after the legendary part II. It didn't receive any Oscars but to me this 13 year old masterpiece is already just as massive classic as the parts 1 and 2 that were released in the early 70's but the truth is that "The Godfather: Part III" still remains to be a disputed film no matter what. People still argue about it and its purpose.

I think this story was necessarily worth telling, timeless saga needed this final part, trilogy had to be concluded. Surprisingly I think part III is in many ways the best part of the whole damn trilogy. At least this was the one I enjoyed watching most, this was the most touching and stylish one of the three. I loved it because of the same reasons others think it's the worst of "The Godfather"-films: it's so melancholy, so utterly melodramatic and Michael Corleone's character has changed so much from what he used to be younger.

Oldish, virile and charismatic 50 year old Al Pacino makes his best performance in the role of Michael Corleone. Eli Wallach proofed that he hasn't lost his charm and talent at the age of 75. His splendid performance as Don Altobello is perhaps one of the most memorable roles of his career and the best ones right after the part of Tuco in Sergio Leone's "The good, the bad and the ugly". It also goes without saying Andy Garcia shines as Vincent Mancini - future Don Corleone. "The Godfather: Part III" is a beautiful and brilliant experience and a movie you can't watch too often. Absolute 10/10.
