Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. They recorded over fifty hours of tape over several days and the result is this book. It is written in interview form lending it a tennis match feel of the reader actually being there swiveling our head from one person talking to the next person replying.

It is absurdly good. The book is brimming jitchcock photographs of his films and also of Hitchcock working on set. The only way to remove the numbness and revive our moral equilibrium is to use artificial means to bring about the shock. The best way to achieve that, it seems to me, is through a movie.

He has always been interested in movies, but mostly recent movies so this summer under the guise of I convinced him to go on a tour of suspense films with me. It turns out he is a chip off the old block. The first Hitchcock film I ever remembering seeing was The Birds. It scared the crap out of me. The entrevistss for me was watching my son watch these movies.

My hitchcocck pulled one leg up and pressed his face against his knee and put a hand to the other side of his face as if he were shielding himself from a blow. His eyes were of course riveted to the screen.

Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut (Aug/) – The Alfred Hitchcock Wiki

Hitchcock was famous for his blondes. There was discussions about filming that movie in color instead of black and white, but lucky for us Hitchcock decided to stick with black and white. He filmed a scene that made the whole world afraid to take a shower. The details are spectacular and would have been lost in the garish splash of blood if color had been present.

His leading ladies were elegant and sophisticated which lent more tension to the plot as their circumstances became more perilous. Hitchcock explains his views of his leading ladies. Sex on the screen should be suspenseful, I feel. You know why I favor sophisticated blondes in my films? In other words what intrigues you is the paradox between the inner fire and the cool surface. Definitely, I think the most interesting women, sexually, are the English women. I feel that the English women, truffaug Swedes, the northern Germans, and Scandinavians are a great deal more exciting than the Latin, the Italian, and the French women.

Sex should not be advertised. Hitchcock and Truffaut discuss every film. One point in one film moves them to another point in another film. Hitchcock is very candid about what he did wrong and when he was right and when everyone else was wrong. At the end of the film when the train is leaving the station the smoke is white.


Reading this book will increase your enjoyment when you rewatch his films. If you have not seen many of his films be sure to avoid the footnotes discussing the plots of the films being discussed. Watching these films with my son has been to quote the Mastercard commercials TCM is devoting the month of September to Hitchcock and I wish that Caleb was still tduffaut to be at home to watch them with me, but we will be coordinating what films entrevvistas be sure to watch with his school schedule and my work schedule and the discussions we have afterward will still be If you wish to see more of my most recent book and movie reviews, visit http: View all 72 comments.

E non avevo ancora letto questo libro. Io vivevo a Palo Alto da qualche etrevistas e stavo lavorando alla ristrutturazione di una casa attaccata dalle termiti. Truffaut faceva domande intelligenti e Hitch dava risposte altrettanto intelligenti. Anche per quelli che hanno smesso di andare in una sala, sedersi ad aspettare che le luci si spengano, e… …godersi il sogno che incomincia quando si accende il proiettore.

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, trugfaut alone read trurfaut. Some critics of hicthcock book have indicated that Truffaut was too entgevistas to Hitdhcock, that he agreed too readily with his opinions, that he couched his questions gently, but what the heck?

Because they two often DO disagree on certain points Loved this. Because they two often DO disagree on certain points of film-making and story-telling, but they do so respectfully, without rancor, I mean – like gentlemen? But the great thing about this record of Hitchcock’s opinions, ideas, and thoughts on both the stories he told through film and HOW he did this, including mistakes he felt he made and how he’d ‘fix’ them, if he could, was the fact it even exists at all.

This was a totally unprecedented and totally unexpected thing Truffaut did, and done at a time when Hitchcock still wasn’t given a lot of respect for his work. His critics complained he was a mere director of ‘thriller’ movies, not serious film. But Truffaut did take Hitchcock seriously and methodically went through all the films, good and bad, which Hitchcock directed. By doing so he created a permanent record of Hitchcock’s personal thoughts, ideas, and so on – taken directly from the most primary of primary sources, the master of the modern thriller himself!

Hitchcock died before special effects, computer-generated images and sequences, etc. The way he used the camera, the way he pulled in or back, or shot around shadows or got a lot out of a tiny gesture or movement – it’s all there. There’s also a good deal about how he handled dialogue – less is more; and the fact he continually was trying to ‘show’ the story, not ‘tell it.

Don’t TELL it to us. We know Hitch’s favorite films and the ones he hated. He was ttuffaut quite indifferent about a few.

We know how he was limited by the film-making techniques of his day – and how he often overcame those limits. We know what he thought and felt about his ‘cold’ leading ladies, the parade of blondes who came to be so important in his films. He thought the perfect and most sensual of women were the English girls who’d appear trurfaut be so correct on the surface, but could turn into a tiger in, of all places, a taxicab.


As I already said, Truffaut didn’t agree with Hitch on everything, but I enjoyed reading about two men who obviously liked and respected one another, and yet could disagree on certain points and just keep trufafut going: Anyhow, I trufgaut this book.

El cine según Hitchcock

E’ impressionante come Francois Truffaut, in una serie di sedute fiume, abbia intervistato Hitchcock hitchcofk una preparazione stupefacente su ogni singolo fotogramma di tutta la filmografia del regista entrevitsas. Bella anche la dichiarazione programmatica sul fatto che le storie dei suoi film dovrebbero essere comprese anche senza l’utilizzo del sonoro: I just reread this book, because it shifted my focus from being an artist to being a filmmaker and now writerand 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 I just reread this book, because it shifted my focus from being an artist to being a filmmaker and now writerand I’m not overstating.

In fact, this book should be a primer for all film classes; once you’ve read it, you’ve got a good foundation in how to make a movie. Now I’m not talking about the technical aspects of moviemaking — lighting, sound, working with today’s actors unlike yesterdays stars who weren’t really all hitcjcock less difficult to deal withthings like that.

I mean the visual needs and limitations of telling a story on film. Hitchcock and Truffaut do a lot of commenting on how to use images to forward the story and how much more important that in in this medium For instance, when he made “Sabotage” inHitch has an anarchist give an innocent boy a bomb to carry to another location. The kid thinks it’s just a reel of film in a movie canister. The bomb is set to go off at 1pm, during a parade, but the boy’s delayed.
