279. The Conversation (#—)

Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, and this week with special guests Ciara Moloney and Dean Buckley, The 250 is a weekly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released Saturdays at 6pm GMT.

So this week, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation.

Harry Caul is one of the best surveillance operators in America. However, when Harry finds himself in possession of a potentially inflammatory recording with very real consequences, he finds hismel at a crossroads. Can the professional eavesdropper remain a passive observer in the drama unfolding around him, or will events force him into a more active role?

At time of recording, it was not ranked on the list of the best movies of all time on the Internet Movie Database.

  1. The Conversation’s a really fascinating film, for a lot of reasons. It feels like it was written in the aftermath of the early 70s….even though Coppola wrote the script in the mid 60s.

    I don’t think the implication is that Harry’s incompetent or bad at his job, per se. I just think that in his line of work, no matter how good you are…someone could always be watching.
