The Conversation (7-Apr-1974)|
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Writer: Francis Ford Coppola
Music: David Shire
Producer: Francis Ford Coppola
Keywords: Drama, Espionage, Surveillance
Gene Hackman plays a surveillance expert, whose latest assignment -- record the conversation of young couple in a public place -- drives him to fear the consequences of his work. Employing real wiretap technology (which seemed to prefigure the bugging of Richard M. Nixon) and fascinating with the mechanics of sound art, the film attempts to prove that recording technology is just as prone to misdirection and untruth as man's own unreliable perception.
