In a movie filled with excellent scenes, I always go back to the assassination of Sollozzo and McCluskey at the Italian restaurant in The Godfather
I love everything about it. The fact that the conversation between Michael and Sollozzo has no subtitles. The small bit of doubt I had when it seemed Michael can't quite find the gun. Pacino's eyes.The building sound of the train as the scene reaches the climax. The way Michael subtly deviates from Clemenza's advice. How McCluskey gets shot. And the gun flip as he leaves the restaurant.
Just a powerhouse scene and one that I can always watch over and over again.
