Both Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut are directors worthy of being the subjects of many documentaries give their talent and intelligence. While Hitchcock/Truffaut, directed by Kent Jones, doesn't offer any new revelations, at least it provides you with a fascinating collection of audio recordings of Truffaut interviewing Hitchcock along with many clips from both of their films. More attention, though, is given to Hitchcock than to Truffaut which makes sense perhaps because Truffaut served as Hitchcock's protégé. Hitchcock wasn't just brilliant, but also quite witty and blunt in his interviews. When confronted with the criticisms of the lack of realism in his films, i.e. in North by Northwest's classic plane chase sequence, Hitchcock simply quipped, "Logic is dull." Every single shot, camera angle and glance in Hitchcock's films were there for a reason, even the birds-eye view of an action sequence in one of his films which served two purposes: it gave the scene a more sinister atmosphere, and it saved $$ because Hitchcock expensive effects to show the details of the action sequence given that it wasn't in close-up. Ultimately, the briskly-paced and well-edited Hitchcock/Truffaut would make for a great supplement to an introductory course about Hitchcock and Truffaut, and a must-see for all aspiring filmmakers.
