The Godfather DVD and DeNiro

The newly remastered and high definition version of The Godfather Trilogy will be released on September 23rd on DVD and Blu-Ray. I plan on double dipping and picking up my favorite film series.... again.

Coincidently, I recently came across this clip on YouTube of Robert De Niro auditioning for the part of Sonny Corleone in The Godfather. It's from the documentary "The Godfather: An Inside Look" which I believe is also in the new set.

Wow...look at that passion and intensity. It's really palpable. There seems to be very little of that left in his more recent work.

Understandably...the dude is like 65.

As I've noted before I think the guy deserves to coast and go for the hefty paycheck now. He's paid his dues.

It's still funny to watch the contrast though between his early work and his current work.
