Hitchcock/Truffaut

Hitchcock/Truffaut
Documentary, History | 2015 | PG-13. 1hr 20min
CAST: David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson DIRECTOR: Kent Jones TUESDAY FILM SERIES

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and a 30-year-old Fran├žois Truffaut sequestered themselves in a windowless Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation. The result: the seminal book "Hitchcock/Truffaut," published a half century ago, dissecting every film Hitchcock had made until then, illuminating his masterful techniques, making the case for the popular director as an artist, and influencing generations of filmmakers. Kent Jones brings "the Bible of Cinema" to invigorating life. He interviews filmmakers whose work has been profoundly influenced by Hitchcock-Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Richard Linklater, Olivier Assayas, and many others.

There will be a post-film discussion following the evening screening led by a local English Professor. Learn more here

Reviews
In an age in which celebrity gossip and page views trump all, hearing two masters talk intelligently about movies and how they're made is, if nothing else, a welcome treat.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
The meeting of the two men becomes increasingly fruitful, and there's the sense of a private genius finally allowing himself to tip his hand.
