Featuring interviews with Martin Scorsese, Richard Linklater, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson, 'Hitchcock/Truffaut' is a fascinating documentary that examines the influence of Alfred Hitchcock on modern filmmaking.
Following 30 hours of interviews with Hitchcock in 1962, 30-year-old Francois Truffaut wrote a book on the director which changed the way cinema was thought of as an art form. This compelling film coincides with the 50th anniversary of the publication of Truffaut's text - which has come to be regarded as a 'bible' for filmmakers - and delves deep into the world of the creator 'Vertigo', 'The Birds' and 'Psycho'.
