Talk To Him

When it comes to Francis Ford Coppola films I'm one of those Team Conversation (or Team Dracula) weirdos who prefer those titles to his more vocally appreciated masterpieces, the stuff that rhymes with Bapocalypse Bow and Ree Rodfather. I'm not saying I hate, uhh, Ree Rodfather. I'm just saying that if I had to choose one FFC film to take with me to a desert island Ree Rodfather would not be the one. Anyway my point is that Film Forum here in NYC is premiering the brand new 35mm print of The Conversation next month, which was supervised by Coppola himself, and I'm so so very there, that's my point. It's screening from March 20th to April 2nd. (poster via) What's your number one Coppola movie? And don't be a smart ass and answer The Bling Ring, you know who I mean. (Even though yes it's true as you can see below I only have a site tag for his daughter; it always amuses me.)

I'm right there with you - I think The Conversation is the best of his work that's regularly praised.

That said, Bram Stoker's Dracula is probably my favorite (not saying it's "best"), and I also have a soft spot for One From the Heart.

And someday I should rewatch Gardens of Stone which I remember liking years and years ago.
