Back in 1962 legendary filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to discuss the secrets behind the art of cinema. The result was Truffaut's 1966 book Cinema According to Hitchcock. This documentary digs up the actual recordings of those meetings and lets us in on the magic of two moviemaking icons talking shop. Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater and Peter Bogdonovich are among the modern filmmakers weighing in on the masters' master class. A must for film buffs. 80 minutes Unrated.
