One of the defining movies of the 1970s, Paramount gives The Conversation the kind of excellent DVD release that it merits. The widescreen anamorphic transfer is excellent and showcases Bill Butler's moody, naturalistic camerawork. Walter Murch remixed his highly creative sound design for the DVD, and the resulting Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is excellent. The multi-talented Murch and writer/director Francis Ford Coppola also contribute interesting and always-engaging commentary tracks for the DVD. While movie fans will enjoy these commentaries, they also really allow filmmakers and students deep insight into multiple levels of creative choices that were made during all stages of the movie. The Conversation is a brilliant movie and it receives the stellar treatment it deserves on this DVD.

Amazing film to add to your collection
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
Great thrilling film! One of the better Coppola films of all time. Must see and must add to anyones collection.
The Conversation is one of those rare films that literally captivates your attention. One must watch the film to now exactly what I mean.The film is brilliantly layered. It is a character study of a survelliance expert plaid by Hackman who stumbles upon a murderous plot durring an assignment and how he deals with it.The solo piano score by David Shire is also great.
I call it a primitive film because it aims to uncover man's essential mentality in a world filled with corruption.It also accentuates man's loneliness and solitary confinment in himself and the world. A truly great film.
I would recommend this to a friend

Coppola's 2nd best film of the 70s
Coppola made four amazing films in the 1970s, and those are his four best movies ("Tucker," "Dracula," "Rumble Fish," and "The Rainmaker" are each good as well). "The Conversation" is a slow-moving and very interesting film. Gene Hackman is great in the lead, and the film's conclusion is unexpected and brilliant. Highly recommended.
