The Conversation Sucks

This movie won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1974. WTF!?

This thing drags along so slowly that I actually yelled at the TV at one point.

I have watched it twice, months apart to see what I was missing. The answer is nothing. As much as I like Gene Hackman and Francis Ford Coppola, this thing is an absolute snail turd of a movie. It’s one of the few movies I can say I actually hate.

OK maybe hate is too strong of a word. I resent it.

The plot twist and cinematography are good enough to garner some points. So, this movie is 30% instead of 0% for those two reasons.
