Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) was written and directed by Kent Jones. Themovie is a documentary about the two-week period during which the youngFrench filmmaker Francois Truffaut interviewed the older filmmakerAlfred Hitchcock. Truffaut--who greatly admired Hitchcock's work--waswriting a book about Hitchcock. It was published in 1966 with the title"Cinema According to Hitchcock."
This long interview was sound recorded, but apparently not entirelyfilmed. So, often we are watching a still while the words are given asvoice-over. We see clips of great Hitchcock and Truffaut movies, butusually I couldn't see the relationship between the words and the filmclips.
Also, Hitchcock spoke English, and Truffaut spoke French, so each washearing the other person's words through a interpreter. (Obviously, theinterpreter was a professional. Still, unless you know both languageswell, you can't tell whether each man is hearing the essence of theother man's words.)
Most of the movie consists of comments about Hitchcock, Truffaut, andthe book given by famous film directors. These include PeterBogdanovich, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Paul Schrader, and Martin Scorsese.
I'm a movie buff, and I've reviewed over 600 movies for IMDb since1999. However, I don't understand the intricate technical subtletiesthat film professors teach, and that were discussed in this movie. Ifelt as if I were outside, looking inside, watching professionals talkabout their magic. I would have preferred less talking and more filmclips, but director Jones wanted to give us talking heads instead. Ofcourse, the heads that were talking were highly successful moviedirectors, so it's hard to complain. However, this is a better moviefor highly knowledgeable film people. It was interesting enough for mywife and me, but I won't suggest that you seek it out unless you arereally versed in cinema.
We saw this film at the wonderful Dryden Theatre in the George EastmanMuseum in Rochester, NY. Naturally, because the movies discussed weremeant for the large screen, the film clips work better on a largescreen. However, the interviews will work just as well on a smallscreen.
