Tell any hardcore cinephile that there’s a movie about the famed week of conversation between Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut, and they won’t even need to watch this trailer. For those of you who might need an extra push to see two of cinema’s grandest talents hanging out and talking movies, the first promo for “Hitchcock/Truffaut” has arrived.
Directed by Kent Jones and featuring folks like Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader (um, that’s 10 more reasons to watch the film right there), the documentary illuminates Hitchcock’s insights into his work, via his biggest fan, Truffaut. This is a must-see for any film fan, and it’s a picture we called “an enjoyable appendix” to the book that Truffaut wrote after his visit with Hitchcock.
“Hitchcock/Truffaut” opens on December 2nd. Watch below.
