Rear Window and The Conversation

The Conversation (film) focuses on the use of sound as a form of surveillance, adding listening as a form of knowing to the theme of voyeurism also important to Rear Window(film). Yet the character of Harry Caul is very different from that of L.B. Jeffries. For discussion: how do the climaxes of the two films compare/contrast as both Harry and Jeff are exposed as voyeurs? How does each respond to the reversal of his position? How does each cope with going from being hidden from detection and seemingly in control –a successful spy— to being discovered and under surveillance? Why do they respond this way and what does it say about each character’s level of complicity, guilt or “rear window ethics?”
