In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scene in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting, used to produce the mythical book, Hitchcock/Truffaut-this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock's incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today's leading filmmakers. Includes bonus materials.

Long drawn out affair that offers very little insight into either Hitchcock or Truffaut. Sub titles almost impossible to read - often white on white background. Voices overlaying one another in two different languages - yes I know that is how it was recorded but it makes for a lousy documentary. Can't recommend this one.

A documentary exploration of the seminal text of the 1960s, HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT, with plenty of great interview clips of Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Peter Bogdanovich, Richard Linklater et al. This film communicates an almost tactile love of cinema. Heavy emphasis on VERTIGO and PSYCHO. Would have been nice to have a sweeping summation of Hitchcock's oeuvre from the silent era to FAMILY PLOT, but the viewer does come away with a greater appreciation for his work as well as what a mensch Truffaut was.
