Gene Hackman plays a surveillance expert who might have picked up on a potential murder.
Dir Francis Ford Coppola
With Gene Hackman, John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Teri Garr
Despite being a surveillance expert paid for spying on others, Harry Caul (Hackman) is fanatical about maintaining his own privacy. Yet when he records a conversation that might be about an imminent murder, can he cope with the consequences all by himself? Astute in its psychological insights, sophisticated in its ethical musings, packed with terrific performances, this is one of Coppola’s finest achievements.
The screening on Wednesday 17 July 18:10 will be introduced by Geoff Andrew, Programmer-at-large.
