This is a film geeks dream. Musings and interviews by one of Europe's greatest filmakers/crital essayist. Francois Truffaut spent over fifty hours with 'Hitch' detailing every aspect of his career. From his start in silent films all the way to his hyper stylized Technicolor masterpieces. Mostly overlooked by film critics for his personal and often times metaphysical style, this book proves that Alfred Hitchcock was one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. I haven't finished it, but I can't recommend this book enough!
