A slowly unraveling thriller that reveals more and more with each new scene and all leads up to the stunning, haunting finale. I thought it was really ingenious the way that Coppola revealed more about Harry’s past, the plot of the film and the conversation at certain intervals and each new reveal hit me like a brick. There is a theme of repetition used throughout the film that really added to the paranoia and fear of everything. This is mainly seen through the score and the repeated use of the actual conversation. Every time we hear one of these things pop up again it creates a lump in my throat and has me holding my breath to see what is about to be revealed. Coppola added a very dedicated feel to everything and it shows that he educated himself on surveillance techniques and made everything as realistic as possible. This also helped with Gene Hackman’s very authentic performance which floored me since I’m generally not a fan of his. Harrison Ford was also very impressive. It’s a taut thriller with a twist that shook me to the core and a certain scene involving blood in a toilet that had my heart stopped.
