I’m sharing some of my favorite reads of 2016. See them all here.
For Truffaut’s generation of filmmakers, Hitchcock was the ultimate master, so the young director proposed a series of interviews covering ever film Hitchcock had ever made. The result is an absolutely engrossing journey into Hitchcock’s mind (he’s quite candid and pans a lot of his own films) and a distillation of his art.
If you’re at all into film, this is an absolute must-read. And even if not, this is just a purely entertaining, fascinating book.
