THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
What could possibly be written about a famous sequel from nearly 50 years ago that hasn’t already been written? Plenty it turns out in this concise volume by Jon Lewis.
Following up on his book on the first Godfather film (affiliate link), Lewis provides a detailed look at not just the making of one of the greatest movie sequels of all time, but also delivers insightful analysis and critique of the film. Lewis provides a recap of the film, helpful for those who may have never seen it or haven’t seen it for some time, as well as plenty of images from the film to make his point throughout. Interspersed with this review of the plot are insights relating the sequel back to the first film while also pointing out relevant context.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
