UNDERRATED: 'The Conversation' (1974)

Sure, part of the charm of this film is seeing Gene Hackman wear John Cleese's raincoat from the "Dead Parrot" sketch for an hour, but these NSA-dominated times are well suited for revisiting a true classic of surveillance and paranoia. Hackman portrays an uptight and tormented professional eavesdropper, and while the film may venture over the top in depicting a growing obsession over a recorded conversation, it's also memorably haunting.
