Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut: A double retrospective at TIFF Bell Lightbox

Hitchcock/TruffautA double retrospective at TIFF Bell Lightbox The title of senior TIFF senior programmer James Quandt’s dual retrospective on Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut is “Magnificent Obsessions,” an apt term to describe the two directors’ love of women, twisted plots, beautiful locations and, above all, cinema. At first glance, they seem like the oddest of couples: Hitchcock, the corpulent Brit, whose old-fashioned manners barely concealed his darkly comic sensibility, and Truffaut, the lithe Frenchman, solemn and discrete until emotions or thoughts would suddenly spring forth from him. But they were born storytellers, who delighted audiences for decades with such classics as Rear Window, Small Change, The Birds, The Bride Wore Black, Saboteur, The Story of Adele H. and The Lady Vanishes. This appreciation of the two directors and Quandt’s curation, comes slightly late as the series began on July 7. The good news is that there’s much more to see of the fine work created by these masters before the retrospective concludes on September 4. What brought the two together was an idea first proposed by Truffaut in the 1950s when he was a film critic, “la politique des auteurs.” In it, he stated that directors make films great, not producers or actors or writers or cinematographers. A revolutionary theory at the time, the idea of director as “auteur” grew throughout the Sixties until it absolutely dominated not just film criticism but also what discerning audiences grew to love in cinema. The rise of the New American Cinema, the filmmaking contingent that included Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, wouldn’t have happened without the auteur theory. Nor...
