Jackie and Greg are joined by cinephile extraordinaire Daisuke Beppu in their discussion of Francis Ford Coppola's epic depiction of life in the mafia, THE GODFATHER from 1972. Topics include the films origins as a "trashy" novel, the casting of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, Coppola's expansive and nuanced storytelling, oranges as a harbinger of death, and the subtlety of Michael's transformation from family outsider into the new Don.
