I usually get a Godfather/70s Coppola kick twice a year.
Man, if I made Godfather 2, I would feel like the greatest filmmaker in the world. Crazy year for film that year though, Godfather II, Chinatown, The Conversation and A Woman Under the Influence.
It's a damn shame that Pacino didn't win best actor that year- I think his work in that movie might the greatest performance of all time (then again, maybe Art Carney in Harry and Tonto might be transcendently amazing, I've never seen it) . Same deal with Gena Rowlands in her role. And of course, De Niro was fantastic and his win is a positive one but it's an even greater shame that John Cazale wasn't nominated (heck, Duvall too) and didn't win.
