Hitchcock/Truffaut

3.5 out of 5 stars

A (slightly rushed – or maybe I just couldn’t get enough) Cinematic Masterclass in 80 mins, this documentary provides both the background and an interesting analysis of what would become a Classic in Cinema Literature. If nothing else, it makes you want to revisit both Hitchcock’s films and Truffaut’s book afterwards and one cannot help but want to hear more from the fascinating, passionate and often rudely humorous recording of the conversation between these two Auteurs which was never made available properly in its entirety. So even though it feels like a lecture at times but when the speakers are such icons and grand masters, who’s complaining?
