The Conversation (1974) is a film about a freelance surveillance specialist’s (Gene Hackman) struggle with guilt, shame, ethics, and paranoia. Released in the same year as The Godfather Part II, it is also written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The trademark style of Coppola is obvious, but is it any good?

Special thanks and shout out to Nikki P. for commissioning this podcast, on the 1978 Oscar winning film by director Michael Cimino, “The Deer Hunter”. Starring screen legends Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, and Christopher Walken, it is a tale about men coming of age, loss, heartbreak, and the horrors of war. In other words, this is not light watching. Jim and A.Ron take turns spinning the cylinder and pulling the trigger as we unpack our thoughts and feelings about the experience. Thanks again, Nikki!
