Couldn’t you just listen to guys like Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut talk about film for hours?
This is the case in the first trailer for the documentary, Hitchcock/Truffaut, which is based on the book of the same name and dives deeper into the conversations between the famed director and the (at the time) up-and-coming director. The film is directed by Kent Jones and features interviews with Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich, and Paul Schrader.
The book featured Truffaut asking about each of Hitchcock’s films with the director breaking them down and discussing in depth about each one. It is an enlightening read for any film fan and the film is being heralded as a wonderful companion piece to the book.
The film has played the festival circuit so far and is set for a release later this year.
Hitchcock/Truffaut opens on December 2.
