Watch: Cinematic Legends Come Together Again in 'Hitchcock/Truffaut' Trailer

Cannes Review: ‘Hitchcock/Truffaut’ Is An Enjoyable Appendix To An Essential Book

Hitchcock/Truffaut,” an iconic text for any budding cinephile and filmmaker, has a new chapter in the form of a documentary directed by Kent Jones. The documentary expands on the week-long meeting between Hitchcock and a young filmmaker who was his biggest fan and would become a cinematic legend in his own right: Francois Truffaut. The book became famous for containing a new and unprecedented level of candor about the director’s filmmaking process and his thoughts on his own films. 

The new documentary features modern day cinema icons like Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader talking about the book and the men behind it. Almost fifty years after the book’s publication, Hitchcock is still influencing filmmakers and the doc adds new context for the book and the director’s legacy.

Check out the trailer above. The film will be released on December 2.
