Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Conversation

Perfect thriller. I was surprised to see touches of Antonioni throughout the film, this time the main character not afflicted by ennui but paranoia and frustration, and the way Coppola takes those emotions to the film's core and paces it around them is quite brilliant. It perfectly blurs the line between a genre film and a character study. Also, that piano score by David Shire... just amazing.
