2º – Bug (William Friedkin, 2006)A woman living in isolation in a roadside motel and suffering from loneliness in her life finds in a strange war veteran comfort, starting a new relationship. The problem is that the emotional problems of both will create something that can destroy both. Nurturing an experimental sense for the unfolding of his story, ‘Bug’ works on his scenes to try to make the viewer uncomfortable with what he is seeing. A different work within the great filmography of great filmmaker William Friedkin.
1º – The Conversation (Francis Ford Coppola, 1974)A reputable wiretap specialist has the mission to investigate for some time a man and a woman at the request of the representative of a large company. Always involved in a solitary routine, living alone in his apartment and without friends, the man will become completely obsessed by the content of the wiretaps, creating a conspiratorial paranoia that may not be so unfounded. A masterpiece in all aspects of Francis Ford Coppola, ‘The Conversation’ is every meander that the cinema has to offer, creating a story that can give the spectator a chill even when working with cadenced scenes focused on small details. The film also presents one of the greatest performances in the history of cinema, with actor Gene Hackman explaining what is most beautiful and tragic about his character and the human species.
