The Conversation is a wonderful movie. Gene Hackman's character is bookended nicely with the role he played in Enemy of The State.

There's also a more recent German film called "The Lives of Others" which fans of The Conversation should enjoy.

And who said i was using or intended to use italian to pronounce/write his name. I used spanish for his use of Marible in the movie. But if is any consolation to you, my father ENRICO, chose Enrique to name me instead...

The Italian for Francis is Francesco, not Francisco.

Can't wait to see this!

But I'm sorry to see even the great old filmmakers turning to digital video. It's just not the same. Call me a purist.

David Lynch's INLAND EMPIRE did not have the crisp visual beauty of his other films (not to mention that it was a muddled rehash of MULHOLLAND DRIVE, but that's another discussion).

...well 'Francisco', i didn't like The God Father. Maybe 'cause i read the book b4, 90% of the actors that played the book's different characters didn't fit -that's just me-. However, i want to see your new film. I like Vincent's and Maribel's work.
