Any other fans of this amazing Coppola movie? Sound is my thing so this movie is among my favorites.

This guy made one beautiful homage to it.

I felt they cheated too much. One scene in particular I recall where Hackman’s character challenges his team to solve a particularly difficult problem, and when they can’t he reveals his solution—using tech he’s invented that doesn’t exist in the real world.

Boo!

It's a very clever idea with a strong cast and crew and one of those great downbeat 1970s endings though I found portions of it unpleasant and strange. Nice tribute.

Very cool.

I half-expected this to be a thread about Tony Scott's Will Smith picture,
"ENEMY OF THE STATE" -- which is another cool tribute to "The
Conversation."
