In this episode, Carlin and Jordan prove that they can talk just about any movie. This time, they try to hit two genres at a time with a musical aimed at kids: “High School Musical.” It is also our first made-for-tv movie. We hit the high notes and low notes, and enough said there.

Today, we watch one of Jordan’s selections. This film, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is The Conversation. This movie is an engrossing character piece about a person who’s working hard to keep his life personal while recording the conversations of others. We talk about the nature of suspicion, surveillance, and paranoia in this fascinating work from a cast and crew of legends.
