A paranoid detective journey into the world of sound and conversations. Possibly the most chilling films ever made in the 70s 'conspiracy theory' genre. The Conversation frightens with its grim, gripping view of the surveillance world.

The Director of a large anonymous corporation hires surveillance expert Harry Caul to record a young couple's private conversation. The film opens w... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. It is apperently Francis Ford Coppola's personal favorite of his movies. Eventually, the only reason this movie didn’t get the love it deserved was probably the fact that Coppola was really on fire in the 70’s and all his movies turned out to be some huge masterpieces (‘The Godfa... read more

Description: Francis Ford Coppola (You're a Big Boy Now, The Rain People, The Godfather) is a proficient film-maker with a keen cinematic sense and a deep moral sensibility. He finished the first draft of the screenplay for The Conversation in 1969. Like The Rain People, it is essentially a story about responsibility. Hooked into the happenings of Watergate, this moral parable has immense wallop. But the movie suffers from a severe case of arrested development and an unbelievable finale.

"THE CLASSICS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN BY NOW Gene Hackman Harry Caul is a man less concerned with the answers to uneasy questions than the questions themselves. He is a well-regarded surveillance specialist; a self-employed spy who builds his own equipment and attracts high profile clients who will pay top dollar for his services. He claims not to care about the inner feelings of others, yet goes to great lengths to keep anyone from gleaning his personal thoughts. As such, he is a human coil of simm"

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. It is apperently Francis Ford Coppola's personal favorite of his movies. Eventually, the only reason this movie didn’t get the love it deserved was probably the fact that Coppola was really on fire in the 70’s and all his movies turned out to be some huge masterpieces (‘The Godfather’, ‘The Godfather: Part II’, ‘Apocalypse Now’). Anyway, the whole thing was a raw and realistic feature, so much more spellbinding than the modern thrillers that we get nowadays. Indeed, for example, many years later, Tony Scott came up with ‘Enemy of State’ which also focusing on some conspiracy theory, also starring Gene Hackman in a similar part, but even though it was fairly ” read more
