Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1974, 113 mins. BluRay, digital restoration supervised by Francis Coppola. With Gene Hackman, John Cazale, Harrison Ford. An enigmatic surveillance expert, Harry Caul, spies on a couple and is convinced that there is a plot to murder them, in Coppola’s paranoid thriller. The Conversation stands out as a moody character study, with Hackman at his finest, and as a cinematic chamber-masterpiece that studies sound the way that Blow-Up studied photography.
