In 1966, a landmark meeting between two of the greatest film icons took place in a series of interviews. At the time, Alfred Hitchcock was the biggest director in Hollywood. He had released all but his last three films, fresh off pre-Cold War thriller Torn Curtain and his landmark run that included Vertigo, North by Northwest, Psycho and The Birds. François Truffaut had most of his career ahead of him, though he was already a big name in world cinema with incredible trio of films to open his career: The 400 Blows, Shoot the Piano Player and Jules and Jim. Coming from a criticism background and a deep love of the British filmmaker, Truffaut set out to uncover the truth that Hitchcock was more than a pulp storyteller. The result was Hitchcock/Truffaut, one of the great film books ever written, and the subject of Kent Jones’s new documentary.
