Apropos of Hermione/potato/tomato: A colleague of Stanley Fish had been watching the Miss Oklahoma pageant, and one of the contestants sang "You say potato, I say potato . . ." but pronounced all instances of potato,
tomato, etc., the same way. He told Fish about this, and Fish threw
up his hands and said, "Brilliant! She's the first beauty contestant who
actually understands the song!"

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/18/16 5:13pm Ĩkє:

We've discussed this before, but my two cents on "The Conversation" is that it's overrated. Michael Sragow says Hackman's performance makes up for the "wispiness of the script". I'd rather just watch a movie with a more interesting script and more of a plot. Heresy, I know. I'm sure the movie must be some kind of classic in the realm of audio editing, but I don't care. More plot, hippies! The whole thing could've been condensed into an hour given its actual substance.
Avatar    Thu. 8/18/16 5:18pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@Paul B: it is my understanding, 'tis indeed the Dan Joseph of DC roots' fame. Also: haven't heard the name Crippled Pilgrims in ages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/18/16 5:18pm Guido from Cologne:

"Unter Strom" = "electrified"
Avatar Thu. 8/18/16 5:20pm danjoseph:

Same Dan Joseph! Come down to Silent Barn tonight and let's hang out!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/18/16 5:22pm Mike East:

@Ike - I wouldn't really argue with you. That film is all about Hackman's performance. In a lesser actor's hands, it wouldn't be watchable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/18/16 5:25pm Michael 98145:

thanks, Guido. i would never have guessed that. "Unter Strom" "under current"
  Thu. 8/18/16 5:27pm Ike:

I was just thrown off by the idea that it might be better than Godfather I or II. Poppycock! Actually it might also have been an issue of expectations for me. Shouldn't've gone into it expecting a paranoid 70s thriller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/18/16 5:30pm Carmichael:

Apropos of nothing, In 2 hours I am leaving to see Jeff Beck & Buddy Guy. I am jazzed!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/18/16 5:38pm common:

creepy
Avatar Thu. 8/18/16 5:38pm Fabio:

Sorry Ike, but I will have to disagree with you on this. It is indeed a lot about Hackman's performance, yes. But, there is also a lot of subtlety in the direction and many details that give you a dense story without relying on the typical tropes -- and this is where the film shines. so many little details: here's just one - his name and his plastic raincoat... you see him wear it a lot and in many scenes it seems like a part of his body almost. now look up his character's last name... there is a real connection there. anyway, I just love it when a film can deliver so many ideas and details WITHOUT relying on the typical story approach, and Coppola always has had a soft spot for experimentation and pushing the boundaries -- it's part of what makes the Godfather II and Apocalypse Now so interesting (among other things)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/18/16 5:38pm Carmichael:

I saw that show too, RevRab. Bozzio was running laps around his drum kit.

And I saw the Yardbirds a few weeks ago. I guess I need to see Clapyon and Page, then my life will be complete ...

It does seem a healthy %age of people rate the Godfather(s?) as contender(s?) for best film ever...

Avatar Thu. 8/18/16 5:45pm geezerette:

Fabio I agree. One of the things I like about "The Conversation" is that there's no discernible formula.

God, Dionne Warwick!

  Thu. 8/18/16 5:49pm Dean:

I'm the wrong person to chime in on film, mostly because I don't much enjoy/get the medium. But I do appreciate the value of slim-to-no narrative. One of my favorite films is Barry Lyndon, for instance. The story is undernourished and the acting is bland, but something works, and it isn't entirely Kubrick's knack for taking pretty pictures. (FWIW, I don't think one can act on film, and directors/actors should stop trying to do it.) Another favorite is Diane Kurys' Peppermint Soda, which is also uneventful and understated. Not sure what these movies share, though, with another favorite, Blazing Saddles.
