The Godfather: Part III

The Godfather: Part III ★★★½

Speaking of late-period Coppola, I've never had as much of a hate-on as many do for the Godfather Part III, but it's undeniably dwarfed by the first two films in the series and suffered especially from questionable editing and structural choices. Clearly he saw the error of his ways and dropped this surprise redux of a film that fans weren't really asking for but will certainly make them rethink its position in his filmography. Most of the changes are subtle and it's actually shorter than the original rather than any kind of expanded edition, but the rearrangement of certain scenes especially towards the beginning makes for a much more involving and intense experience.
