Blog flurry

A few posts today while I'm waiting for the OK to leave work today. The first one is a recommendation to check out the underlooked, understated "The Conversation." It's the movie Francis Ford Coppola did between his Godfather movies, but nothing like those movies at all. It's more a character study starring Gene Hackman as a surveillance expert that gets a little wrapped up in his work.

It features some of Coppola's frequently used actors, like the guy who played Fredo and Frederic Forrest (better known to Apocolypse Now fans as Chef), Harrison Ford (pre-Star Wars) and Robert Duvall. Great cast and interesting story, relevant today in our wire tapping times...
