After a break of 15 years, director Francis Ford Coppola and writer Mario Puzo returned for this last of the famed Corleone crime family trilogy. Al Pacino again plays mafia head Michael Corleone. Now aged, he’s wracked with guilt from the wrongdoings he committed during his ruthless rise to power and is trying to legitimise the family business – but is kept back by a younger generation’s ambitions. It’s the only one in the series not to have won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and while it can hold its own against many films, it’s definitely weaker – and more operatic – than its revered predecessors.
