Recently binge watched The Godfather trilogy and this film reminds me of how dirty politics can be:

Politics and crime, they're the same thing; Vast monies have gone to people in high political places and the Vatican Bank (Federal Reserve) is the guarantor.

What a fantastic film. I heard much about it, but none in my family had seen it before, so when I and they watched it together on our couch it was an experience.

1971 A superbly made classic gangster movie of an Italian immigrant to NYC circa 1910. who rises to power as a Mafia DON and how he "protects" his extended Mafiosa family. A true classic!

IMHO, the first two Godfather installments qualify as all-time great cinema. Maybe some scenes are too long, but even the stretches with little or no dialogue are tense and gripping - sorta' like Kurosawa stuff.

When released in 1972 The Godfather became a cultural sensation comparable to Gone With the Wind in 1939. Many of its famous lines, like, "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" and "going to the mattresses" became cultural staples. Watching it now, nearly a half century later, the film has lost literally none of its cinematic impact.

One of the greatest films of all time. Just as good today as it was in 1972

Now this was a true 5 star movie, because it had everything. A great story, great acting, great producing and every aspect was terrific. Most movies that are entertaining really should be rated a 3 star, a bit above average a 4 and ones that are terrific and get awards are the true 5's.

IMDb has 62 quotes including this one (thanks to its contributors):

Vincent Mancini: Don Lucchesi, you are a man of finance and politics. These things I don't understand.

Don Lucchesi: You understand guns?

Vincent Mancini: Yes.

Don Lucchesi: Finance is a gun. Politics is knowing when to pull the trigger.
===
These two are not:

Politics and crime, they're the same thing.

Vast monies have gone to people in high political places and the Vatican Bank (Federal Reserve) is the guarantor.

Michael: [speaking to Carlo] Only don't tell me you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and makes me very angry.

(Part II) Michael Corleone: "Fredo... you're nothing to me now. ...You're not a brother, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you, or what you do. I don't want to see you at the hotels, I don't want you near my house. When you see our mother, I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there. You understand?" (walks away)

(Part II) (Vito returns years later to Sicily and meets Don Ciccio, the man who murdered Vito's family) Don Ciccio: "What's your name?" Vito Corleone: "My name is Vito Corleone." Don Ciccio: "Vito Corleone! Ha ha ha! You took the name of this town. And what's your father's name?" Vito Corleone: "His name was... Antonio Andolini." Don Ciccio: "Louder. I don't hear so good." Vito Corleone: "My father's name was Antonio Andolini... and this is for you!" (tears his stomach open with a knife)
