It is interesting on a cerebral level, but slightly less successful dramatically where it's let down by a certain flatness or coldness. I should say I do regard it as being a very good film however.
That’s the film snob snob’s take.
I think it’s better than Apocalypse Now but not as good as either Godfather film.
