The Synopsis for Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) 720p
In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène 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: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.

I would encourage anyone who viewed this film to get a copy of the book. For it is in the book that we learn about the master and what he did and how he thought. This was Truffaut's baby and it is incredible that this is left for us. The strength of the film is in the commentaries of the participants. We get a picture of the admiration shared by the two directors. That said, despite the limitations of 85 or so minutes, we are made privy to techniques employed. The focus is really on two films, "Vertigo" and "Psycho." That is enough in some respects because most of Hitchcock's dazzle is employed here. The lesson learned is that Hitchcock as a stylist and a sort of visual tyrant made him what he was. One interesting point made was what would have happened if he had been forced to work with egos like Marlon Brando, James Dean, or Dustin Hoffman, who certainly would have tried to manipulate Hitchcock. Montgomery Clift tried and failed; so we get a sense of that thing. All in all, this is decent, but it is more the observation of the director who attempted to produce a summation of the book. It only works in bits and pieces. Still, I'm glad I got a chance to see it.
In 1962 Francois Truffaut the critic and filmmaker interviewed Alfred Hitchcock over eight days in 1962 at his offices at Universal Studios with an interpreter present although Hitchcock could speak French.
The encounter led to Truffaut's 1967 book about Hitchcock's filming techniques and elevated his reputation from just being a commercially successful director of thrillers to an auteur.
This documentary examines the encounter and revisits both Hitchcock and Truffaut as filmmakers but also interviews directors such as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich and Richard Linklater who talk about the importance of Hitchcock the director and what they learned from him.
Film historian Kent Jones has made an entertaining film but it has too much ground to cover and skimps through Hitchcock's early years in Britain and surprisingly not one British director is interviewed. I wanted to learn more about the various techniques and how he got on with the actors, who Hitchcock likened to cattle.
Given the age difference between the two men, Hitchcock was over twice as old as Truffaut, they got on very well with each other and sadly Truffaut died only a few years after Hitchcock's death.
