BLOW UP THE CONVERSATION: Better living through surveillance and the nature of reality

A lot has been said about the parallels between The Conversation and our current concerns with the surveillance state, data protection and the struggle to safeguard our privacy and remain anonymous. At its core, however, I think the film deals with an even more profoundly philosophical question which seems more relevant than ever: that of our relationship to reality, both assisted and encumbered by technology.
