The Conversation, 1974 Coppola.
The perfect bookends, and in the middle you can throw in De Palma's mess Blowout
I have't seen either for awhile, but I always thought that the Conversation held up while Blowup made me cringe with its pretentiousness. The only thing I liked about Blowup was watching the short bit with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck perform with the Yardbirds. It did however make me read the short story it was based on by Julio Cortazar. The story is ambiguous, but much better than the film.
