Kudos must go to Paramount for giving one of the better films of the 1970's its just due on the format we know and love. Two commentary tracks, a short vintage featurette, and a nice anamorphic transfer should make lovers of The Conversation very happy.

Here is a link to my full review of The Conversation

JustinS - excellent review of a great dvd of one of the best films of the 70s. Coppola says it is his favorite of his "personal" films. Hackman is incredible as always.

Fantastic movie! I really wish more people knew about it, since it kinda got lost in the shadow of The Godfather II. The opening shot alone is a masterpiece. The reason I like Enemy of the State is primarily its seeming link to the Conversation.

The movie is great as is the DVD. If you're unsure about whether or not you would like the film, AMC has been airing it pretty regularly (next showing is March 12) so you could check it out there first.

This is one of the best movies ever made. The DVD is in my top 5 of the 75 I own. For a 1974 movie, the picture and sound are outstanding. The extras just make it that much better.

A more appropriate question would be "Did you notice Robert Duvall in this movie?". Not hard to notice him either, but at least his role is smaller and his appearance is uncredited.
