The Conversation (Francis Ford Coppola, 1974)
Duration: approx. 109 min
Francis Ford Coppola's finely tuned thriller stars Gene Hackman in one of his key performances as paranoid secret surveillance expert Harry Caul. Haunted by a guilty conscience and torn by the pressures of his work, Caul fears for the lives of those he spies on. Considered by Coppola as his most personal film, it perfectly reflects the conflicted and paranoid state of a post-Watergate and Post-Vietnam America at the time.

Dr. Strangelove (Stanley Kubrick, 1964)
Duration: approx. 103 min
Stanley Kubrick's Cold War comedy considers a what-if scenario of the wrong person pushing the wrong button; the story of an unhinged United States Air Force general ordering a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. With a brilliant screenplay co-written by Kubrick and a host of great comic performances – including three from Peter Sellers – it remains one of the best political satires of the past century.
