Kent Jones on Hitchcock/Truffaut

"When François Truffaut sat down with Alfred Hitchcock in 1962 for a book-length interview (published four years later as Hitchcock/Truffaut), he had no way of knowing that he would change the way Americans thought about their own culture.

Here's an interview from Studio Daily with director Kent Jones on his new documentary, Hitchcock/Truffaut.  

And here's the trailer for the film:
