The Films In My Life
Franšois Truffaut(1932-1984), perhaps the most respected member of the New Wave group of French moviemakers, left a legacy of beloved and influential films that includeThe 400 Blows, Jules and Jim, Stolen Kisses, Day for Night,andThe Story of Adele H.Equally fascinating is the very large body of film criticism Truffaut wrote over many years forCahiers du Cinemaand other leading film journals. Wonderfully varied, personal, and informal, these reviews all communicate unabashed love for and an enormous excitement about the movies.The Films in My Lifeis Truffaut’s own selection of more than one hundred essays that range widely over the history of film and pay tribute to Truffaut’s particular heroes, among them Hitchcock, Welles, Chaplin, Renoir, Cocteau, Bergman, and Bu˝uel.
