Only eight movies in Metacritic’s database boast a perfect Metascore of 100. Can you guess which ones they are? And how many have you seen? Behold cinematic perfection in this short list of flicks at the top of the heap.
It’s likely no surprise that Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, originally released in 1972, made this list, as it’s one of the most acclaimed films of all time. It received ten nominations at the 45th Academy Awards and won three of those, including Best Picture.
Taking place in 1940s New York, the film stars Marlon Brando as the head of the Corleone mafia family, and Al Pacino as Michael, the son who reluctantly gets drawn in to protect the family interests.
The Washington Post praised the film’s cinematography, calling it, quote, “a great American picture, full of incredible images and lasting moments.” Based on a novel by Mario Puzo, The Godfather is also praised for the nuances and complexity of its characters and plot.
