Francis Ford Coppola

Godfather directed by Francis Ford Coppola and immortalised by the skills of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino among others is an institution in film making. This pioneering movie, based on the novel by Mario Puzo, about the Italian mafia in and around New York City was followed by two sequels and still continues to inspire many film makers across the globe. The ways and wisdom of the don are awe-inspiring and yet, he is not infallible. More than the drama it is the technical aspects of the film that keep me hooked — the camera work which actually accentuates every character is a highlight. Any movie buff, should watch this film, at least thrice.
