Double Feature!

Gene Hackman plays a surveillance expert in both Francis Ford Coppola's THE CONVERSATION, celebrating its 40th anniversary, and Tony Scott's 1998 ENEMY OF THE STATE - could it be the same character? See the films together and decide for yourself.

All audience members can enter to win ENEMY OF THE STATE on Blu-ray!

1974, American Zoetrope, 113 min, USA, Dir: Francis Ford Coppola

Sandwiched between THE GODFATHER and GODFATHER II, THE CONVERSATION is Coppola at his very best - a sinister, unstoppable portrait of moral (and physical) violence and the sheer paranoia of living in the modern world. Gene Hackman is tremendous as fly-on-the-wall surveillance expert Harry Caul, drawn into a murderous whirlpool when he’s hired to bug lovers Frederic Forrest and Cindy Williams. Co-starring John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Teri Garr and Harrison Ford.

1998, Buena Vista, 131 min, USA, Dir: Tony Scott

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott ratchet up conspiracy paranoia to the nth degree as labor lawyer Will Smith unknowingly comes into possession of a video showing a crime being committed by National Security Agency chief Jon Voight. When Smith has his assets frozen and his family put in jeopardy and must go on the run, he receives help from an unlikely source: renegade surveillance expert Gene Hackman (playing a distant cousin to the role he assayed in Coppola’s THE CONVERSATION).

Screening formats: Blu-ray (THE CONVERSATION) and 35mm (ENEMY OF THE STATE)
