  • Excerpt: The Movie Gene Hackman had become one of the world's biggest movie stars after The French Connection and Francis Ford Coppola one of the most admired filmmakers in the wake of The Godfather . Shortly after these films, the two collaborated on what remains an underappreciated little character drama, The Conversation . Hackman plays Harry Caul, a tightly-wound surveillance expert, not so much a private detective as a civilian spy.

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: Sometime after Francis Ford Coppola Directed and won the Best Director Oscar for “The Godfather”, he followed it up with a movie called “”The Conversation”". Now, by today’s standards, this movie moves at a snail’s pace as we’re used to high-energy, action movies.

  • Excerpt: In 1974, the same year The Godfather: Part II took home six Academy Awards, Coppola had another film in release, no less a masterwork than his "Big Three" of the decade. The Conversation might lack the epic sweep of Coppola's better-known work, but it's a brilliant film, a haunting meditation on life and loneliness wrapped up in a thriller.

  • Summary: In this post-9/11 world, we've become used to covert surveillance, and in fact to overt surveillance. Security cameras track our every move at local department and grocery stores, and in London, to cite just one example, there's virtually no public place anywhere that isn't under the watchful eye of a camera.
