We decided on a whim to do this as a 180 from holiday fluff. The issue - you can't always pencil in 9 hours of viewing in a week; plus probably another 10 of features. This will be the 1st of a series dealing in Coppola's trilogy. Others will probably fit this profile also, but this dead lift of a story will suffice to set you back a few steps while expanding your movie horizon with really bad eggs.
An early anti-hero, Al Pacino is more charming than he should be in the film that put many things (and careers) in motion. Come back for seconds & pile your plate high with some carnage ravioli... and Spam. Not the email, the food. Well, kind of food. Just - enjoy the movie talk. Perhaps over food.
P.S. - we'll spoil your feast later, but only after all courses are covered.
