One of many is during the "superman" scene where Michael realizes it is Fredo that went against the family when he says he and Johnny Ola have been to the club before.

The look of betrayal on Michael's face when he heard that was palpable.

It was almost as powerful as the scene in "Mystic River" when Sean Penn realizes it's his daughter who was killed and his reaction to it.

When the camera zooms in slowly on Michael in the chair while he describes his plan to take out Solozzo and McClusky

Either the baptism “do you renounce satan scene” or the horses head in the bed scene.

The Roth business scene is great because it highlights how full of shite they all are. Almost everything they do is motivated by some level of personal emotion. Roth hated Michael because what he did to Moe Green. Michael killed Solozzo and the cop because they tried to kill his father. Etc

Godfather I- Michael's closeup on his face while at Louie's with Sollozzo and the police captain. Train noise going in the background with Michael ultimately making the decision that will dictate the rest of his life. Powerful

Honorable Mention- Michael in the hospital with his father and telling him, "I'm with you now, Pop". Joining the family business


Part II- Vito following the Black Hand along the rooftops, and the scene in the stairwell with the lights turning on and off while Vito has the towel wrapped around his hand.

Honorable Mention- Fredo and the boat. This is actually probably the best scene but its pretty obvious.

I've seen this movie dozens of times, but it took me several viewings before I really noticed Michael's full reaction. Well after he hears Fredo bragging the camera pans out and Michael puts his head in his hand.

Also notice the girl Fredo's with at this same point (about 1:48) looks like Jennifer Lawrence.

Superman Scene

Toward the end of GF3 when Mary gets killed, because this mercifully ended Sofia Coppola's acting career.
