Hitchcock/Truffaut Trailer

The Greatest Story Hitchcock Ever Told. The first official trailer has debuted for Kent Jones' documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut, about the relationship between the two legendary filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut. The film is also about, and focuses on, the book "Cinema According to Hitchcock" also known as "Hitchcock/Truffaut" - which is easily available on Amazon now for anyone interested. The documentary also spends time with many of today's great filmmakers, asking them about the book and the influence that Hitchcock/Truffaut had on them. It looks like a fascinating, must-see documentary for any and every last movie nerd or cinephile to seek out as soon as possible. It arrives in theaters later this year.

Here's the first trailer for Kent Jones' doc Hitchcock/Truffaut, on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

Hitchcock/Truffaut Documentary

In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting—used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut—this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader. The doc, directed by Kent Jones, first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Cohen will release Hitchcock/Truffaut in select theaters starting December 2nd.
