As the Watergate scandal was unfolding in 1974, writer-director Francis Ford Coppola created this haunting film about a paranoid surveillance expert (Gene Hackman) who increasingly comes to believe that a couple whom he is surveilling are about to be murdered.
The film, which can surely be considered a major neo-noir movie, makes very effective use of its San Francisco locations, making it a rather eerie time capsule of early 1970s San Francisco.
