Film review: "Hitchcock/Truffaut" 

Consisting of an extended interview between Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut, the influential 1966 book "Hitchcock/Truffaut" is a favored text among Film 101 professors everywhere. And with good reason: the conversation is endlessly enlightening. The book (and by extension, the film) offers a unique dialogue between one of history's greatest directors (though Hitchcock was still relatively unappreciated at the time the book was published) and an auteur still relatively young in his career. Instead of delving into the story behind the book, film critic and director Kent Jones supplements their conversation by working in new interviews with directors like David Fincher, Wes Anderson, Richard Linklater, Olivier Assayas, and -- of course -- Martin Scorsese. A significant portion of the zippy run time is devoted to dissections of Hitchcock's most well-known films -- "Psycho" and "Vertigo" -- but there's plenty of insight to be gleaned. More diversity among the interviewees would have been nice, but listening to the filmmakers nerd out over the Master of Suspense is pure film geek heaven.
