Tarkovsky is my favourite deoictrr so I own all of his movies (all 7 of them) from Kino International to Criterion versions. I own the book that Stalker's loosely based on, Roadside Picnic , and I've played the 3 PC games that were inspired by the film. )The reason behind why I'm not a Godfather fan is because I don't like the Italian mob. Cosa Nostra et all really bother me because of the Italian cliche9s that has resonated throughout the decades and the whole living with your mother who cooks spaghetti for you, etc is an annoyance. I also hate the you mess with one of us you, mess with all of us ideal because I believe that everyone can fight their own battles, which is why I much prefer the Yakuza; they almost never get into fights because they'd end up in wars and bloodshed. I'm going to rewatch The Godfather one day just so I could watch the second at one point in my life. I'm told that the first two films are basically one long movie and that the third's the epilogue. Again, I hate the Italian mob so I'll need to get in the mood. But Goodfellas is a movie that I love. It's not mainly about the riches and the power, it's about the hard work that goes into being a footsoldier and that I can relate to.I also didn't like Pacino in the first Godfather film; I thought that his performance was decent at best but also that his character would not have become the Godfather that he turned into because I didn't see it in his character to become that. It was lacking the portrayal. But that's just me, and now that I'm far more experienced in movie watching I may enjoy it more, especially its cinematogrphy.
