Dir Francis Ford Coppola. With Gene Hackman, John Cazale, Allen Garfield. 113min. Digital. 12A Gene Hackman excels as Harry Caul, a legendary surveillance expert who becomes obsessed with a fragment of conversation he’s commissioned to secretly record. Copolla’s taut, sparse thriller is a reflection of the paranoid, post-Vietnam American psyche, channels the fears of an intesifying Cold War and is a commentary on the voyeuristic nature of cinema. Inspired by the relationship of surveillance sound to cinema, on the evening of 20 Oct the BFI Southbank will be wired for a sound-based evening, blurring the line between viewer and protagonist.
