Godfather: Part III, The (1990)

New York, 1979: Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) – diabetic and pushing 60 – wants out of his criminal empire in a search for respectability. But it’s difficult to break with the family tradition.

This third and final sequel completed the Corleone family trilogy, showing an ageing Michael dividing his time between politics and gangster activities, with the corruption spreading all the way to the Vatican.

Inevitably, the tentacles of the old business prove all-embracing and powerful, with fatal consequences.

This nearly three-hour sequel was made for purely mercenary reasons (director Francis Ford Coppola reportedly needed the money for a personal project), but despite the dubious casting of Coppola’s daughter Sofia, the final chapter in the Godfather saga has a haunting, elegiac tone and another masterful performance from Pacino.
