Brilliant for Hitchcock fans, Truffaut fans and fans of cinema,
This review is from: Hitchcock: A Definitive Study of Alfred Hitchcock (Paperback)
This book is a brilliant. Two great directors debating over Hitchcock's career and his motives for his movies. We get a full interview of questions perhaps 500 spanning over Hitchcock's career. What I love about Truffaut's approach is that he has only the most respect for Hitchcock but also isn't afraid to criticise his work and disagree with him. I think in time Truffaut earned Hitchcock's respect for this.
It's the type of book you read quick and pick up from time to time, simply magnificent. If you are a student of film I would say there is much to learn about the craft of the work just by reading this book.
