'Hitchcock/Truffaut' Is a Love Letter to Filmmaking

Author:
Publish date:

Kent Jones Hitchcock/Truffaut is a film about a book about films--a documentary about the extraordinarily influential series of interviews that Francois Truffaut did with Alfred Hitcock, breaking down the latter's most famous movies virtually shot for shot.

Jones's film uses interviews with some of today's top filmmakers--including David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Richard Linklater and more--to powerfully convey the influence of both Hitchcock and the book. "I realized as I worked that I had no desire to interview friends, family members, artistic collaborators or experts. Hitchcock/Truffaut is a book about filmmaking,” Jones tells Flavorwire. “So, I wanted to make a film with nothing but filmmakers. And I didn’t want just ‘filmmakers’ in the abstract, with everybody chiming in about how great and important Hitchcock was… I wanted people with a personal connection to the work, people I knew and whose films I admired, people with a connection to the book.”
