Film Acting | The Godfather: Finding the Through Line of the Character (Episode One)

Director and actor Robert Castle of International Theatre New York examines how an actor can discover the through-line of a character, focusing on the work of Al Pacino as Michael Corleone in The Godfather. In this section, we focus on Michael at the opening of the film at his sister’s wedding.

We are very excited to announce a new video series that we are releasing on Youtube! Film Acting: The Blood and the Breath and the Tears and the Sweat is an in depth exploration with Robert Castle of some of the most compelling performances in the history of film.

If the camera is the eye, and the director is the brain, the actor is the living organism. In this series we investigate how together they breathe life, moment by moment, into the film.

Films include The Godfather, The Deer Hunter, the films of Ingmar Bergman, Midnight Cowboy, and more.
