Katt Shea on

The Godfather Part II

Released 1974
Distributor Paramount Pictures

Robert De Niro’s extraordinary performance as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver came fast on the heels of his equally fine—and completely different— performance as a young Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s superb sequel to The Godfather. A feast for the eyes and ears, the movie criss-crosses over time and place from Michael Corleone as a wailing infant to a soulless murderer in adulthood. A practically perfect movie.
