Hitchcock/Truffaut

3 posts in this topic

I want to recommend the 2015 documentary by Kent Jones examining the interviews between Hitchcock and Truffaut that led to Truffaut's legendary book about Hitchcock.  The documentary itself contains audio from the interviews that I had never heard before. I don't know if it will a revelation to all viewers, but some of the background of the interviews was interesting.  Talking heads included Wes Anderson, Olivier Assayas, and David Fincher.  The DVD extras are not essential viewing, but add more color and background to the main film.  The film is mostly about Hitchcock, but it reminded me of what a landmark the book was and what a loss Truffaut's early death is.

It's a memorable book - I have referred to it many times.
