Forgotten Movies: Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015)
This is a doc based on Truffaut's book about Hitchcock from 1966. It is fairly new (2015) but since the movies it looks at are old, I felt it apt. Despite the 30 year difference in age, the two men died only three years apart. Such a shame. Hitchcock expresses a regret near the end that he didn't put more into character development in his movies. A small flaw perhaps in a great career.
What's you favorite Hitchcock. Mine is REAR WINDOW. VERTIGO is a bit too witchy for my taste.
And my favorie Truffaut: Perhaps SMALL CHANGE.
