THE GODFATHER

The Godfather

The Godfather

Arguably one of the most famous films of all time in its own right; Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather follows Michael, the young and idealistic son of Vito Corleone, head of the most powerful mafia clan in New York. Despite his best efforts, Michael is somewhat inevitably drawn into his family’s criminal underworld business. The theme of corruption, including that of the police, rages around this epic narrative in all forms. Viewers can watch agog as the clan engage in dodgy dealings with the crooked Irish-American Police Captain Marcus ‘Mark’ McCluskey. Irredeemably corrupt, McCluskey’s connections with the illicit organisation and its bosses end in tragedy. As an all-time classic, this is most certainly one to watch.
