Outstanding Restoration: The Godfather--The Coppola Restoration

The Godfather (1972) wasn't shot or presented in a now-dead format. But I'm including this three-movie box set because it contains two masterpieces that get a new lease on life with Blu-ray, thanks in large part to restoration expert Robert Harris.

The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1974) work together as cinema's great crime-family epic (you can skip Part III; it lacks the same resonance). The cinematography-- occasionally lush, occasionally muted--plays a large part in the story, and Harris's restoration and the Blu-ray transfer turn these well-loved masterpieces into new, or at least reborn, experiences.
