Godfather trilogy not his best work, says Coppola


Acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola doesn’t think too highly of his The Godfather trilogy and does not place the films among his best five works.

Pagesix.com reports that the director thinks that his five best movies are The Rain People (1969), The Conversation (1974), Apocalypse Now (1979), Rumble Fish (1983) and the about-to-be-released Youth Without Youth, which is based on a novella by Romanian-born philosopher Mircea Eliade. Coppola said, “The easiest way to make sure a movie is successful is to make a traditional movie very well.”
