The Conversation


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.

Free with Museum admission.
