Mr. Hitchcock, wie haben Sie das gemacht?

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed. Here is a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on two cinematic masters from very different backgrounds as they cover each of Hitch's films in succession. Though this book was initially published in 1967 when Hit ...more

Recommended to Jeffrey by: Will Byrnes
Shelves: hollywood
”To reproach Hitchcock for specializing in suspense is to accuse him of being the least boring of film-makers; it is also tantamount to blaming a lover who instead of concentrating on his own pleasure insists on sharing it with his partner. The nature of Hitchcock’s cinema is to absorb the audience so completely that the Arab viewer will forget to shell his peanuts, the Frenchman will ignore the girl in the next seat, the Italian will suspend his chain smoking, the compulsive cougher will refrai ...more

description

Quando Hitch è morto lo ricordo bene.
E non avevo ancora letto questo libro.
Il giorno che è morto era un martedì.
Martedì 29 aprile 1980.

Io vivevo a Palo Alto da qualche mese e stavo lavorando alla ristrutturazione di una casa attaccata dalle termiti.
Quello che dovevo fare ricordava molto quello che nella pubblicità della Plasmon faceva l’uomo che scolpiva la scritta con un martellone: data la mia scarsa esperienza in materia, continuavo a sbagliare la mira, e la mano che reggeva l

Le Cinéma selon Alfred Hitchcock = Hitchcock/Truffaut: édition définitive, François Truffaut
Hitchcock/Truffaut is a 1966 book by François Truffaut about Alfred Hitchcock, originally released in French as Le Cinéma selon Alfred Hitchcock. It is based on a 1962 exchange between Hitchcock and Truffaut, in which the two directors spent a week in a room at Universal Studios talking about movies. After Hitchcock's death, Truffaut updated the book with a new preface and final chapter on Hitchcock's lat

This book will teach you more about the art of film making than 4 years (and $200,000) at NYU will.

Loved this.

I didn't know this book existed! It's actually a transcript of a fifty-hour interview (done over several days) which Truffaut conducted with Hitchcock. The historical appeal alone was enough to make me WANT the thing, let alone read it. Some critics (of this book) have indicated that Truffaut was too kind to Hitchcock, that he agreed too readily with his opinions, that he couched his questions gently, but what the heck? I disagree! Because they two often DO disagree on certain points

This book is about the two film directors Hitchcock and Truffaut. It is a wonderful book and Jeffrey has written a superb review today on this.

So my advice is to read Jeffrey's review and then purchase this book. It is an historical document of the film world.

A gem to have.

La finestra sul cinema - rewind

Ripropongo il commento su questo splendido testo perché ieri sera ho visto al cinema il documentario proprio ispirato alla famosa serie di interviste che Truffaut fece nel ’62 negli studi della Universal a L.A. a un Hitchcock famosissimo e però poco considerato dai critici americani, mentre era adorato dagli europei. Truffaut, che aveva allora 30 anni, ma era già un apprezzato e premiato autore della nouvelle vague , nonché critico e animatore, assieme a tanti alt

I just reread this book, because it shifted my focus from being an artist to being a filmmaker (and now writer), and I'm not overstating. I was making a living designing and building backdrops for visual merchandising and doing display windows in San Antonio, as well as commissioned works of art, when I found an early edition of Truffaut's interview with Hitchcock and got my first idea of how films were made. In fact, this book should be a primer for all film classes; once you've read it, you've ...more

كتاب رائع عن العزيز أتش، ربما لم أشاهد كل أفلام هيتشكوك ولا حتى نصفها ولكني واقعة في غرامه بالفعل من أول فيلم، وفي هذا الكتاب خطوت معه كل خطوة في رحلته السينمائية، وكواليس كل فيلم قام بإخراجه بصحبة أسئلة ذكية ومستفزة أحيانًا من فرنسوا تروفو المخرج والناقد.
كتاب ممتع، ومسلي ويفتح الشهية على الحياة، وأعانني على فترة سيئة للغاية، وعلى الرغم من تبلل غلافه لسبب غير معلوم إلا إني سأحمل دومًا له ذكريات رائعة

Bir defa okumakla bitmeyecek bir kitap. Çünkü Truffaut'ın filmlerden sorduğu sorular o kadar detay içeriyor ki uzun zaman önce izlemiş olmak yetmiyor. Belki de filmler kitapla birlikte izlenmeli. Diğer yandan Truffaut'ın zaman zaman Hitchcock'un bile hatırlayamadığı şeyleri sorması, hatırlatması hayranlık verici.

Hitchcock'u veya sinemayı seven herkesin okuması gerektiğini düşünüyorum.

Il Maestro e l'Erede

Celeberrimo questo lungo dialogo tra Hitchcock e Truffaut, forse anche troppo: in sostanza si tratta di un lunghissimo excursus nella filmografia del regista inglese che arriva fino ai suoi ultimi anni di vita (grazie alla parte finale inserita da Truffaut dopo la morte di Hitchcock).
E' una lettura ovviamente necessaria per gli amanti del cinema e, soprattutto, consigliata a chi si intestardisce a proclamare la superiorità della trama, del racconto rispetto agli altri eleme

Una de las biografías imprescindibles para entender el cine clásico y su evolución en la forma y en el fondo que ha tenido este arte durante la segunda mitad del siglo pasado. "El cine según Hitchcock" es la recopilación de una serie de entrevistas que el famoso director y actor francés François Truffaut le hizo al genio británico durante catorce años. En esta obra se expone con una claridad (muy agradecida todo hay que decirlo) la metodología y técnicas que Hitchcock utilizó durante el medio si ...more

Um livro maravilhoso, um tête-à-tête de dois monstros do cinema. A conversa vai percorrendo a carreira cronológica de Hitchcock e daqui ficam impressões muito úteis: 1) Truffaut era um crítico que via os filmes como um cineasta, e muitas vezes os seus comentários são próprios de quem vê para fazer e faz para ver; 2) Bonito de ver que a reverência e admiração do francês tem, na conversa, um contraponto: a modéstia de Hitchcock e o seu genuíno prazer de conversar com alguém que viu ao detalhe os s ...more

There’s a brilliant moment in Truffaut’s introduction in which he explains why suspense, far from being a mere trick or incidental effect, is in fact of the essence of cinema, indeed, of narrative itself: “Suspense is simply the dramatisation of a film’s narrative material, or, if you will, the most intense presentation possible of dramatic situations.” Which is one reason, perhaps, why Hitchcock, the wonderfully perverse genius behind Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds and a host of other ...more

Alfred Hitchcock is considered to be one of the best directors of all time but that wasn't always the case. At the height of his career, many critics saw Hitchcock as a commercial director whose films thrilled audiences with their suspense but weren’t meant to be taken seriously. All that changed when French director François Truffaut drastically altered the narrative of how we discussed Hitchcock’s work and he did so with this book.

This is film school in book form. Never have I read a book so f

Always heralded as one of THE great books on cinema and the best, supposedly, on Hitchcock, these documented interview sessions with the great French director Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock is as good as reported. This was a revised edition that includes an addendum by Truffaut after Hitchcock's death in 1979. It is full of insights both by Truffaut and Hitchcock and has a great amount of photographs. At times Truffaut gets a bit stuffy and opinionated and corrective of the choices Hitch ...more

Me lei este libro por una asignatura del master y, por como me lo había vendido mi profesor pensé que me diría más sobre el cine fuera de Hitchcock, no solo sus películas y ya. Aun así ha sido muy interesante ver las películas a través de los ojos de Hitchcock y como solía proceder a la hora de dirigir.

Este es uno de esos libros que me recomendaron leer en varias asignaturas de la universidad pero nunca llegaba a hacerlo. Ha tenido que ser ahora, unos 6 años después de terminarla, cuando por fin me anime a adentrarme en él. Mi principal miedo era que me resultara pesado o aburrido, pero si hubiera llegado a imaginar que se me haría una lectura tan interesante lo hubiera leído antes. Sin duda, me espera un maratón de películas muy pronto.

"Good evening, students of the macabre."

Hitchcock is a comprehensive study of the films of the great British-American director Alfred Hitchcock, which explores every one of his films from the beginning of his career up to Torn Curtain (1966). After Hitch's death, Truffaut apparently updated the work to include Hitchcock's final films. The book, like Objects of Desire: Conversations with Luis Buñuel or such works as Godard on Godard or Fellini on Fellini, is a collection of interviews. What make

Hitchcock and Truffaut managed to create the ultimate film podcast, and I would highly encourage the reader to look up the actual tapes of these interviews because they will catch far more of the inflections and delivery which in turn will create a stronger impact. These conversations illuminate how important the process of film-making is, and how Hitchcock, during his life, seemed constantly concerned with making his films dynamic and significant to the larger body of what film wa

The definitive examination of the definitive movie career. Plus a beautiful book in its own right, with glorious photographs and stills. A wonderful birthday present that i devoured from beginning to end.

Truffaut is an amazing author. He worships AH, but doesn't let that get in the way or ruin it. It's amazing to witness Ah let his guard down, and thus enable both to critically examine every film he made. A master in full flow shares with the Sorcerer's apprentice. Pleased to see the respect for

This is a fantastic book if you're a Hitchcock fan, or if you're interested in storytelling or in the art of filmmaking. In a series of interviews by Francois Truffaut, Hitch is completely candid about his process, his intentions and what he perceives are his successes and mistakes.

A word of warning, however, if you'd like to preserve in your mind some of the magic of filmmaking, as Hitch is basically revealing his tricks.

Απαραίτητο βιβλίο-εργαλείο για αυτόν που αγαπάει τον κινηματογράφο. Ολες οι ταινίες του μεγάλου σκηνοθέτη, τις σχολιάζει ο ίδιος και ο Φρανσουά Τρυφώ. Στις τελευταίες σελίδες όλη η φιλμογραφία του αλλά και σε ταξινόμηση οι αναφορές του Χίτσκοκ σε ταινίες και σε ανθρώπους του κινηματογράφου

“In many of the films now being made, there is very little cinema: they are mostly what I call 'photographs of people talking.' When we tell a story in cinema we should resort to dialogue only when it's impossible to do otherwise. I always try to tell a story in the cinematic way, through a succession of shots and bits of film in between.” 13 likes
