Hitchcock by François Truffaut( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is fellow director 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 Hitchcock was still active, Truffaut later prepared a revised edition that covered the final stages of his career. The book is a storehouse of insight and witticism, including the master's impressions of a classic like Rear Window ("I was feeling very creative at the time, the batteries were well charged"), his technical insight into Psycho's shower scene ("the knife never touched the body; it was all done in the [editing]"), and his ruminations on flops such as Under Capricorn ("If I were to make another picture in Australia today, I'd have a policeman hop into the pocket of a kangaroo and yell 'Follow that car!'")

The cinema of cruelty : from Buñuel to Hitchcock by André Bazin( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An amazing collection of essays from the father of film criticism. Perhaps the single most important voice of cinema in the twentieth century, Andr Bazin profoundly influenced the development of the scholarship that we know now as film criticism. Bazin has acutely analyzed the cinematic values of our time, extending to his international audiences?the impact of art for the understanding and discrimination of his readers.? The depth and logic of his commentary has elevated film criticism to new heights. The reputation of Andr Bazin continues to grow as his writings are published and studied by filmmakers and filmgoers alike. Often referred to as the Edmund Wilson of film, Bazin was more than a critic.?He made me see certain aspects of my work that I was unaware of,? said Luis Buuel.?He was our conscience,? wrote Jean Renoir.?He was a logician in action,? echoed Franois Truffaut. In The Cinema of Cruelty, Franois Truffaut, one of France?s most celebrated and versatile filmmakers, has collected Bazin?s writings on six film?greats?: Erich von Stroheim, Carl Dreyer, Preston Sturges, Luis Buuel, Alfred Hitchcock, and Akira Kurosawa. The result is a major collection of film criticism. 2 black-and-white photographs
