"The Godfather: Part II" (1974) dir: Ford Coppola, 4 stars - "And now I come back to the music. More than ever, I am convinced it is instrumental to the power and emotional effect of the films. I cannot imagine them without their Nino Rota scores. Against all our objective reason, they instruct us how to feel about the films. Now listen very carefully to the first notes as the big car drives into Miami. You will hear an evocative echo of Bernard Hermann’s score for 'Citizen Kane,' another film about a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it."
