In Hitchcock/Truffaut, director Ken Jones offers a documentary surrounding a famous interview between the two equally famous filmmakers.

hitchcocktruffaut1_optIn 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 Blu-ray and DVD include the following bonus features:

  • Q&A with Kent Jones & Noah Baumbach
  • An Appreciation of Notorious
  • Peter Bogdanovich Remembers Hitchcock
  • Richard Linklater on Truffaut
  • Rope: Pro and Con
