The Conversation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Keep a couple of things in mind as you watch The Conversation's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. First of all, Coppola himself is on record in this commentary stating that with regard to the Union Square footage, he wanted to utilize as many of the kinds of cameras real surveillance experts would, replete with looks approximating smaller millimeter formats and technologies like zoom lenses, in order to give the film more of a verité feel. Coppola also talks about wanting even the more staged elements of the film to feel like a surveillance video, and so often cameras will suddenly veer off of the main characters and move into unexpected objects. This Blu-ray is frequently quite grainy, as befits its source elements, but it also is breathtakingly sharp almost all of the time, even within the context of Coppola's vision. Whole new levels of fine detail are apparent throughout the film, for the most part. There are a couple of strangely softer moments which I am assuming (with absolutely no proof whatsoever) might have been shot by a second unit. These include a shot of Harry sitting at a desk, one fade out shot of him playing his sax in his apartment, and a couple of establishing shots around San Francisco. Otherwise, though, this is a stellar effort that perfectly recreates the original film experience while upping clarity, saturation and contrast to considerable new heights.


The Conversation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Perhaps because Coppola still co-owns distribution rights to The Conversation, it's been given a bit more care than usual with typical catalog releases, for we're offered not just the film's original mono track in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, but also a very, very good, surprisingly nuanced lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. Purists may want to stick with the mono track just to experience the film the way it was originally released, but I highly recommend at least checking out the 5.1 track, which has some incredible immersion, especially with regard to the central Union Square sequence, something the film returns to over and over again as it progresses. Voices dart in from the right and left, crowd noise moves seamlessly between channels and the wafting voices of Williams and Forrest peek through unexpected channels as they make their way around the square. David Shire's haunting score also sounds fantastic in the 5.1 repurposing. Dialogue is clean and clear, and fidelity is superb on both of these tracks. The Conversation is filled with intriguing, sometimes almost mystifying, sound effects, and those also pop with a sonic vivacity that really makes this one of the standout catalog releases of the year in terms of a repurposed 5.1 mix.
