The Conversation

Newly restored! When surveillance expert Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is hired to record a couple talking in San Francisco’s Union Square, the job seems innocuous, if odd. But as he studies the tape, Harry becomes convinced that he’s wrapped up in an ominous plot, and the pair may be in grave danger. Francis Ford Coppola made this riveting thriller in between the first two Godfather films, winning the Palme D’Or at Cannes, earning three Oscar nominations, and yielding one of the definitive documents of ‘70s paranoia.
