Michael Should Have Taken the 5th

Pentangeli was right. "10-to-1 you said. 10-to-1 odds that he'd take the fifth and I lose." After all these viewings I now realize Michael was a retard, and Tom Hagen more so. What possible gain was there not to take the 5th? Pride? Marcellus Wallace knew that pride will fuck with you. I guess people never listen. All testifying did was open him up to perjury charges. That's all they could get him on.

So the next time I see the film, I hope Michael does the right thing, and Hagen, who apparently is a worse lawyer than even a wartime consigliore, gets his client to be smart. For reals.
