The Dangling Conversation
December 16, 2007
If you’ve seen The Conversation, the paranoid character study that Francis Ford Coppola made with the clout he’d earned from the first two Godfather movies, you know that much of the story concerns a conversation in a park between two people who may or may not be lovers. The protagonist spends a lot of time subjecting the talk, captured from a distance, to analysis with all kinds of technology.
Now you can see the same kind of technology at work, along with plenty of new whizbangs Coppola could hardly have imagined at the time, applied to another pair of people who might be mistaken for lovers.
