To be honest, it was outrageous that I even had to do this. As far as I am concerned, The Godfather is the greatest film of all time – not just my favourite – THE greatest film of all time.
Let me back up.
I have a mate, Alec, who has started a film orientated podcast. The idea is to put various films on trial. He has done one about The Shining and Prometheus. I am genuinely angry that I didn’t come up with idea.
Anyway, he approached me to do a piece on The Godfather which he felt is the most overrated film of all time. Let me repeat that – this son of a bitch thinks that Francis Ford Coppolla’s classic is overrated. OUTRAGEOUS.
It is safe to say that it got heated – but it was fun.
