Don Brando, the father of the gods.

The Godfather.
After 2 attempts of watching it and throwing it away, the third attempt enticed me. Movies that allow me to sit in the most uncomfortable position ever without me even noticing it; that's how I tell a movie is good.
Honestly, I have to admit, without Brando in this movie as the godfather, it would NOT have been what it was. When Brando died (Corleone), I have to admit I was sad. His character was played so intricately and he was extremely interesting to observe. A man full of wisdom, be it that. I felt the need for my first blog post to include some interesting quotes from the godfather himself. It's my tribute.
Don Corleone: I said that I would see you because I had heard that you were a serious man, to be treated with respect. But I must say no to you and let me give you my reasons. It's true I have a lot of friends in politics, but they wouldn't be so friendly if they knew my business was drugs instead of gambling which they consider a harmless vice. But drugs, that's a dirty business.
Don Corleone: I want no inquiries made. I want no acts of vengeance. I want you to arrange a meeting with the heads of the Five Families. This war stops now.
Don Corleone: What's the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft with all that comedy you are playing with that young girl. Never tell anyone outside the Family what you are thinking again. Go on.
Don Corleone: It's an old habit. I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men.

Don Corleone: I'm gonna make him an offer he won't refuse. Okay? I want you to leave it all to me. Go on, go back to the party.

I don't know about you, but the Don engulfs me with his wisdom through his clever, carefully chosen words. Pay your respects to the deceased.
