Excerpt: I grew up watching The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, and Apocalypse Now, and I can pretty much quote those films from memory, so it may seem hastily impulsive for me to name The Conversation as my favorite Francis Ford Coppola film after watching it for the first time last night.
Excerpt: I was really looking forward to checking this film out but ended up walking away disappointed. There are some interesting scenes but for the most part, I found the film to be pretty boring. Things pick up at the end but the film ultimately left me with more questions than answers.
Excerpt: The Conversation may be Francis Ford Coppala's masterpiece. A powerful exploration of personal privacy and the perception of words, The Conversation takes the audience through the process of recording and deciphering a seemingly trivial dialogue between a couple.
Excerpt: Gene Hackman's role as Harry Caul in Frances Ford Coppola's The Conversation is both passion and haunting. Passion because he is very good at his job as an independent surveillance expert as he finds the tricks of his trade to 'ease drop' on unsuspecting people.
Excerpt: The idea is interesting but I found the result very heavy going. All the participants are very odd and I could not get into it at all. The disc quality is OK, it is an old film and it does not ask or expect a lot. Rent
The movie is fantastic but disc has some issues with loading times.
