Just for the sting in the tail the finale applies, it becomes a memorable film that is further testimony to Coppola's mark on 70's cinema.

I've seen and enjoyed many horror films in my time, ranging from the genuinely scary classics Alien, The Exorcist and The Shining through to various video nasties and slick '90s shockers such as Misery and Silence of the Lambs. But I've rarely been so unnerved as I was as this slow, low-key, down-beat bugging drama reached its climax. OK, the twist at the end is fudged and cheated as far as the viewer is concerned, but it makes sense in terms of the plot and characters. One of the most troubling films I've ever seen.

The skilled Coppola and terrific Hackman make me wonder why this classic has been so ignored.

Certainly well told, in that the direction can sometimes be very paranoid in nature like the main character's perception of the world. And the big reveal is quite impressive in its cleverness. But it was drawn back by the way all the parts outside of the hotel room or his apartment were drawn out which I really don't like in films. Well made but shouldn't have been nominated for Best Picture, especially against The Godfather Part II, Chinatown and The Towering Inferno.

Technically this might just be the best Coppola picture I`ve seen to date. Paranoia all over the place in this brilliantly shot film that has a wonderfully slow pace, something that fits the script very well. Gene Hackman is excellent as the surveillance expert who goes slightly mad. The sound has a big part in this and it`s brilliantly mixed.
A masterpiece in every way.
9,5/10

Boring 2 hours, with a lame twist tacked on to try and save the film, it fails
