Synopsis Smart, thoughtful and elegantly done, HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT is more than an authoritative look at the careers and interpersonal dynamics of directors Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut, a pair of unlikely soul mates...3.5 stars out of 4 -- From The 39 STEPS AND THE LODGER to REAR WINDOW, PSYCHO and all stops in between, this film gets us drunk on Hitchcock's movies again.Curating a selection of the original interview recordings, Mr. Jones fashions an unfaltering encomium that’s entirely free of the highfalutin monologues that might deter noncinephiles.[A] terrific documentary about the interview sessions and about the directors involved in them.It’s a film that reminds us that filmmakers, whether or not they’re expert at discussing their own work, really let their critical and analytical imaginations flow when they get talking about the work of a director they really admire.4 stars out of 5 -- Smartly illustrated by a canny choice of great clips, the result is a cinephile’s dream.4 stars out of 5 -- The documentary certainly makes for fascinating viewing...it’s great to hear audio of these exchanges, and the new interviews that make up the bulk of the film are entertaining, erudite, and refreshingly enthusiastic.Filmmakers discuss the tremendous impact of François Truffaut's 1966 book HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT, in which Alfred Hitchcock painstakingly detailed his directorial process. Wes Anderson, David Fincher, Richard Linklater, and Martin Scorsese are among the A-List directors who pay homage to the legendary director and the tome's widespread influence on cinema. Directed by Kent Jones.
