5. Recording The Conversation - The Conversation (1974)
In the film: Francis Coppola's sweaty, anxious '70s surveillance thriller begins with a tightly orchestrated bugging, beginning with a long zoom into this San Francisco park.
The Google view: It's Union Sqaure in the city centre, and thanks to the wonder of Street View, you can glide over the park playing the spy yourself.
Slide over to the corner of Geary and Stockton to see the spot where Harry Caul's crew park their van.
6. The Coffee Shop Explosion - Children Of Men (2006)
In the film: In a recognisable but grim-looking future London, Clive Owen grabs a coffee and heads into the open just in time to avoid being splattered over the street by a bomb blast.
The google view: The old home of the British press, London's Fleet Street. In the movie it's transformed by subtle CGI, but scroll past the banks and greystones and you get a Clive’s-eye view of St Paul’s Cathedral.
Next: The Big Lebowski, E.T.
