Movie Flashback: The Conversation

The Conversation

I’ve wanted to see “The Conversation” for years, and with the pandemic raging I was able to catch up on a number of movies I had wanted to see. I had high expectations for this one, and frankly I came away a little disappointed.

Some movies just don’t age well, and that’s sometimes true with movies from the 70s. The decade was loaded with amazing films, and usually they live up to the billing. But some of the films that seemed ahead of their time in that decade just don’t age as well.

I was bored with this one, even though the story throws in some interesting twists.

The story behind the film is interesting, and one comes away impressed with the direction of Francis Ford Coppola and the acting by Gene Hackman and John Cazale. Roger Evert loved it, but the slow pace was too much too overcome.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander discuss old Seinfeld episodes

It’s always fun looking back on old “Seinfeld” episodes, and of course it’s even more fun when old cast members are involved in the discussion. So, watching Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) and Jason Alexander (George) discuss the Chinese restaurant episode and The Contest episode is a real treat.

Joaquin Phoenix at the SAG Awards

Speeches at awards ceremonies can often be boring. But sometimes you get a memorable one like this from Joaquin Phoenix as he receives the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in “Joker.” He spends his time praising all the the other nominated actors: Leonardo DiCaprio, Adam Driver, Christian Bale and Taron Egerton. He then gives a touching tribute to Heath Ledger.
