ACF#22: The Conversation

 

Ok, here’s the next episode in our trilogy on liberalism and the age of technological surveillance. We talked about Antonioni’s Blow-up last week–we’re talking about De Palma’s Blow Out next week. This week, John Presnall and I talk about Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation. We talk about secrecy, the revelation of evil, and the limits of technology in achieving justice for all human beings. Listen, share, and let’s talk in the comments, friends!

    Curious, before listening. Do you consider Enemy of the State to be a sequel to this?

    My introduction to Harrison Ford.

    I thought about that watching the movie–there’s gotta be people like you. Maybe someone who first saw him in Apocalypse Now, too. Strange to think of Indy/Han solo that way…
