Pretty good choice of essays. The best are the pamflet by and the interview with Truffaut, although those by Bazin are enjoyable too. Other essays by the Cahiers-people can be a bit self-contradictory and confusing at times. The rest is made up of highly critical ones and those try to bash Bazin and the Nouvelle Vague movement. This last group is a bit overrepresented i feel like, since I bought this book mainly because I have enjoyed a lot of Nouvelle Vague movies.
