Harry Caul is one of the most fascinating characters I've ever seen in a film. And I'm convinced that the crappy grey coat he wears makes up a large part of who he is.The film itself is flawless- it's one of the few that I've walked out from and described as 'perfect'. The long, lonely camera work, the beautiful haunting music and the masterful editing of a conversation that is still intriguing after the 5th time you've watched it. I love this film.
I am wondering at the significance of the song 'When the red, red robin goes bob-bob-bobbin' along' in this film. Any ideas anyone?
oooh. I just found out that a 'caul' is a fetal membrane that protects the fetus at birth- and hence we can draw paralells between this and Harry's thin, slippery raincoat.This is a great discussion.
