Ever heard of Hitchcock or Truffaut? Most likely you have seen some of their movies—possibly more of the work they directed than by other filmmakers. Our focus this week is on the new documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut as the French director’s daughter Laura and independent filmmaker Roger Leatherwood take turns writing about it. Pam Grady interviews the doc’s director, Kent Jones, who also offers an essay on growing up discovering these movies. As a bonus we offer a selection of most unusual trailers in Eat My Shorts.
