Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is a private detective, specializing in monitoring telephone conversations. Colleagues think it is genius at work, but he knows that this is not true: The apartment is so unsafe that the owner enters the undisturbed birthday. His letters are opened and read on a daily basis, the phone's not secret. At the height of the awkwardness of stealing a cassette with a very import... read more

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

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.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: December (57 movies items)

"December 25 "I'm not afraid of death, but I am afraid of murder." This was a very solid movie, but I don't think it's the great movie everyone else claims it to be. It could be that I wasn't in the exact right mood for it, but I did really like the story telling, Gene Hackman's performance and I thought the movie was executed well, but it wasn't the movie I was expecting it to be. I thought I was going to get a thought-provoking character study and in the end I was slightly underwhelmed. So "
