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 apparently 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

It is a classic movie. That means everybody recommends it and nobody watches it. Hehe, ... sorry.

But it is true, the movie is hard to get into. It is slow, but only if you judge it by modern Marvel-like movies. It is more about creating a portrait of the man- Mr.Caul rather than some great event. I was about to drop it halfway, but then I read Coppola loved this film and pursued ... read more
View all The Conversation (1974) reviews
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. Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is the "best bugger on the West Coast." He's made a name for himself as a private surveillance and security technicia ... (more)

" Amazon Prime- 1hr. 53min. First Viewing Quite possibly the pinnacle of the 1970s paranoia-wave, or even the best in cinema history, The Conversation is a brilliant, simmering work that foreshadows the government surveillance state, as well as offering an expert mystery-thriller/character study. This really is a movie where nothing is really out of place; the storytelling and filmmaking is near-perfect, and there are no real misses. If there's one minor issue, it's that the opening scene goes on"
