director:
Kent Jones
cast:
Alfred Hitchcock, François Truffaut, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson

In 1962 Truffaut wrangled a series of interviews with the master of suspense. The result changed the perception of Hitch from genius hack to brilliant auteur. Jones mixes the original tapes with clips from the films and interviews of contemporary directors, including Wes Anderson, David Fincher and Martin Scorsese. “Smart, thoughtful and elegantly done, …a love letter to film itself, to the value and lure of the cinematic experience.” (LA Times)
