Watch The Conversation - Alternative Versions.
'The Conversation' sadly doesn't get mentioned as much as Coppola's other
(more flamboyant) seventies movies ('The Godfather' parts one and two,
'Apocalypse Now'), even though it as good as, if not better than the
aforementioned. In fact if someone argued that this was his greatest
achievement as a director, I would be hard pressed to disagree.
'The Conversation' bears many similarities to Antonioni's 'Blowup', another
superb movie that requires multiple viewings to really appreciate. Both
movies are very much of their time, and therefore 'The Conversation' is
fuelled by the keywords of the decade it was made in - paranoia and deceit.
The other main difference between the two movies it that 'The Conversation'
is not only a head trip but also a taut and suspenseful thriller. Post
Simpson/Bruckheimer audiences may not have the attention spans to appreciate
it, but that is their failing, not this movie's.
Gene Hackman gives one of the finest performances of his career here as the
complex and troubled surveillance expert Harry Caul, one that is possibly
rivaled only by his too little seen gem 'Scarecrow'. And the supporting cast
is first rate, and includes the late John Cazale, a favourite of Coppola's,
Harrison Ford, Frederick Forrest, Cindy Williams, Teri Garr, and (an
uncredited) Robert Duvall. Last but not least a superb turn from the
underrated Allen Garfield, an actor who has appeared in many odd movies,
from 'Get To Know Your Rabbit' to 'Destiny Turns On The Radio'. He is
dynamite here, in a role originally intended for the legendary Timothy
Carey, as a pushy rival bugging expert.
'The Conversation' is hypnotic, multi-layered and haunting. See it whatever
