To wyraz kinofilskiej fascynacji, pieczolowicie opracowana monografia krytycznofilmowa, jedyny w swoim rodzaju podrecznik kina, ale równiez utwór artystyczny, w glebszej warstwie dokumentujacy rodzenie sie wiezi miedzy dwoma wybitnymi twórcami.
The finest-ever book-length interview with a director. Hitch is expansive, teasing, urbane, full of anecdotes and clearly relishing the attention; Truffault is respectful but probing, bringing his own directorial know-how to bear ... in the wake of 2015's Hitchcock/Truffault documentary, helmed by Kent Jones, Faber & Faber has republished [the] second edition, even more lavishly illustrated. But be warned - dip into a page or two and you'll be hooked for hours... (Philip Kemp Total Film)
Absurdly entertaining, gossipy and insightful. Hitchcock is brilliant on editing, suspense, casting, adaptation
and moviemaking as a business. Anyone with an interest in film should read it.
Francois Truffaut (1932-1984) was a French film director, screenwriter, producer, actor and film critic.
