  Encyclopedia: 1972 in film
The film is based upon the novel Goodbye Picadilly, Farewell Leicester Square by Arthur La Berne and was adapted for the screen by Anthony Schaffer.
The film opens with a sweeping shot along the River Thames to the Tower Bridge, and while the interior scenes were filmed at Pinewood Studios, much of the location filming was done in and around Covent Garden and was an homage to the London of Hitchcock's childhood.
Certainly the area as seen in the film still exists, but the market no longer operates from there, and the buildings seen in the film are now occupied by restaurants and nightclubs, and the laneways where merchants and workers once carried their produce are now occupied by tourists and streetperformers.

 The Godfather (1972 Film)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It took a long time to accept the loss of family as one by one that generation died off in the 1970's, to realize that life was not going to be a cocoon of large, warm, loving family relations.
Yet, way back in 1972, this magnificent, mournful music presaged that tragic realization that life in America was no longer going to be so cozy for those who choose complete assimilation into the melting pot.
It's the motherland calling, the soul yearning, ignorant of the original grievances that caused the rift that sent whole communities and solo immigrants to the shore of a new world that was often no warmer a welcome mat than the hidebound, superstitious and vendetta-plagued hilltop farming communities they sought to escape from.

 The Godfather (1972)
Many film reviewers consider the second part equal or superior to the original, although the first part was a tremendous critical and commercial success - and the highest grossing film of its time.
Gangster films are one of the oldest of film genres (starring Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart), emerging as an influential force in the early 1930s (e.g., Little Caesar (1930), Public Enemy (1931), and Scarface (1932)).
This gangster film re-invented the gangster genre, elevating the classic Hollywood gangster film to a higher level by portraying the gangster figure as a tragic hero.

 The Godfather (1972 Film)
The bad rating is not for the film score but for this CD, which (as of my typing this) is the only available soundtrack of THE GODFATHER.
"The Godfather" was a stellar, high-impact film, and it would have been easy for the score to get lost in the background of all the action, acting, personality, drama, intrigue, and tension.
Instead, the film score fit the film perfectly, augmenting every scene, and creating musical triggers for powerful visual memories.

 The Underview and 2001: Andre Tarkovsky's Solaris   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This concept of water, incessantly moving, is a thread that runs through the film, a stream of life that embodies endless change and represents all that is free, yet is constrained to follow whatever proves to be the least resistant path from its source, regardless of how indirect that path might be.
The film's main character, that is, in terms of his on- screen role.
Solaris, released in 1972, was the third of the 7 feature films directed by Andrey Tarkovsky between 1962 (Ivan's Childhood) and 1985 (Sacrifice).

 Music : The Godfather (1972 Film)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Instead, what I HAVE to say is that the music in the film IS perfect, but the music on the album is so ignorantly assembled that it makes the purchase nearly worthless.
This CD, however, offers only glimpses of what the REAL film music was, sometimes even fading out with no cause and no transition!--surely no film score should ever result to such a despicable convention.
Because the music held so much promise and because the film is such a pivotal addition to cinema and because the entire Godfather series is a phenomenon of itself, one would have hoped that the producers of this album could have successfully translated an inspiring score onto a CD.

 Music : The Godfather (1972 Film)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The fictional Corleone family were Sicilian; my own were Neapolitan and Barese, but for anyone of southern Italian heritage, whether on the mainland or Sicily there is a chill of genetic resonance and recognition when you hear Rota's haunting mix of Neapolitan and Sicilian sounds and rhythms.
In fact, here is only a very small list of film soundtracks which have been remastered and re-released with the majority (if not all) of the music from their respective films:
My advice to the many people who love this film score so much (as I do) is simply to be patient and hope that there will soon be a quality soundtrack release, one which does not insult the ears or the intelligence of the listeners.

 Le Viager / 1972 / film review / Pierre Tchernia
The film’s only fault, possibly, is that the comedy occasionally goes way over the top, sometimes with a forced campness which doesn’t quite seem appropriate.
What makes this film particularly memorable are the tirelessly amusing performances from the lead actors Michel Serrault and Michel Galabru, both well establish character actors with a penchant for comedy.
The appearance of a young Claude Brasseur and an even younger Gerard Dépardieu at the end of the film is an unexpected treat, which goes down rather like a chocolate liqueur after a sumptuous main meal.

 Guardian Unlimited Film | Reviews | Solaris (1972)
One of the greatest films of all time, Solaris is a movie that insists you wait on it, and requires you to hang on so that it can deliver its subtle point slowly and gently.

 La scoumoune / Hit Man / 1972 / film review / Jose Giovanni / Belmondo
When this film was made, its lead actor Jean-Paul Belmondo had become less of an actor and more an international superstar, after the roar-away success of such films as L’homme de Rio and Borsalino.
As a consequence, his performance in this film (and many subsequent films) is somewhat marred by his halo of success.
Despite some clumsy padding (such as the ridiculous attempt to rescue Xavier and Roberto from the prison), this is, overall, an entertaining film, and an interesting study of the morality of the criminal milieu.

 dvd Superfly (1972 Film)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Curtis Mayfield was already something of a well-known figure in the Soul and Rhythm & Blues scene before he made this soundtrack for the 1972 blaxploitation film of the same name.
But in agreeing to soundtrack the Soundtrack for the movie "Superfly", Curtis was far too shrewd to simply just deliver a wonderfully musical soundtrack, and what he did was to, actually take the opportunity to produce a soundtrack with a underlying message.
One that highlights the dangers of 'Running the Streets' and a strong 'Anti-Drugs Message', and although Curtis is clever enough to match the music and lyrics closely enough to the line of the film, and make the majority of songs readily identifiable with various key scenes of the film.

This low-end DVD sadly, maybe from the only copy available-on faded 16mm-it is on several other "public domain" labels("Public Domain" is when a film falls out of copyright because it's been edited different ways by different distributors and theaters and the original makers simply lose track of it, or disown it altogether).
This is a very cool film of the early 70's, clearly designed to promote Evel and his planned jump of the Grand Canyon (he had to settle for the Snake River Canyon in Idaho instead.) But this is quite simply the worst DVD transfer I have ever seen.
This film is a true classic and captures the magic that was Evel Knievel.
