Friday, April 07, 2017
4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Gene Hackman, John Cazale, Allen Garfield In perhaps his finest performance, Hackman plays surveillance expert Harry Caul, an extremely private man whose life is rudely invaded when his eavesdropping leads him too close to the truth. Made between the first and second Godfather films, Coppola’s intelligent and personal character piece stands as one of the great films of the 1970s. A rare IB Technicolor print, struck for the original release, will be shown.
