Another classic to tick off the list

Finally I watched The Godfather Part II tonight. I’d tried watching it (again on TV) years ago, but had started late and fallen asleep half way through. Since it started late tonight I was worried this might happen again… but I’d say I’m older and wiser now…

It’s really a very good movie, a deep and introspective rumination on family and honour and power… and it has some intense action scenes and some gripping drama. It’s incredibly long as well — moreso given it was on ABC2 and still went to nearly 1am. But I didn’t want to leave the room once, didn’t want to miss a second anyway.

So what next for the classics, I wonder?
