We meet at last. I debated assigning this a grade other than "A+" just to be controversial, but while this film has probably lost a lot of its impact through endless imitation and parody, one can see why it's as praised as it is.

The main victim of the film's success is Marlon Brando; I found it very, very hard to take him seriously. Conversely, Al Pacino's performance is much, much more low key than you would expect, given how his acting style has evolved over the years. Everybody else is in good form too. If there's one niggle from a story perspective, everything to do with Michael's relationship with Kay feels very underdeveloped.
