Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|07.09.16||Internet|| Hitchcock/Truffaut was one of the very first books I ever read about film. I feel like it was late highschool, maybe 11th grade. I had seen a few Hitchcock movies, had no clue who Francois Truffaut was, and really just heard it was a good book. Afterward, I embarked on a VCR & TV Guide journey to watch all the Hitchcock movies; a journey in which I am still a few shy. It also led to reading a bunch of other interview books, a couple amazing ones by Peter Bogdanovich, and indirectly created my love for the oral history genre. So they made a documentary about the making of the book: a guaranteed love fest from me, right?|
Right. I loved this. I mean, as a film premise it's a bit thin so half the movie feels like it just becomes a Hitchcock documentary... but it's not like hearing directors such as Scorsese and David Fincher and Richard Linklater talk about Vertigo and Psycho is bad. Still, looking at stills and listening to the audio recordings isn't terribly much, but I'll take it, damnit. It makes me want to re-read the book (and re-watch all the movies).
