Jules and Jim (dir. Francois Truffaut, 1962)

I usually shy away from tales of tragedy as I tend to unconsciously compare and mirror the hero’s futile attempts at life to that of my own or to ones I have yet to make so imagine my horror as halfway through Jules and Jim, what seemed to be a promising, humorous tale of friendship turned out to be a story of lost and waste. 1,014 more words

Cannes Film Review: 'Hitchcock/Truffaut'

“In many of the films now being made, there is very little cinema: They are mostly what I call ‘photographs of people talking,’” Alfred Hitchcock told his awestruck French interlocutor, critic-cum-helmer Francois Truffaut, in the indispensable monograph whose 50th anniversary inspired film historian Kent Jones’ “Hitchcock/Truffaut.” The master of suspense referred to his own style, which tried to dispense with dialogue in favor of conveying a story through a sequence of shots, as “pure cinema,” and even though Jones’ documentary relies heavily on talking heads, recycled clips and traditional narration, there’s no question that it embodies pure cinema of a different sort — namely, a complete and total immersion in the medium, by way of a career-spanning appreciation of Hitchcock’s work, designed to echo and extend the impact of Truffaut’s seminal book. 752 more words
