Films: The Conversation
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Released: 31st October 2011 (DVD & Blu)
The Conversation starts slowly, with the audience not really sure about what is happening. We slowly realise that the couple we can see walking about are being monitored by a group of men who seem to be following their every move. It is only when Harry Caul (Hackman) jumps in the back of a clapped out old van that we realise this is old school surveillance.
We then jump to Harry’s work space; an open and somewhat deserted warehouse, maybe a reflection of his personality, as he seems to like to distance himself from people, something that is confirmed in a scene with him and his lover.
