Films In My Life by Francois Truffaut

"Truffaut brings the same intelligence and grace to the printed page that he projects onto the screen. The Films in My Life provides a rare knowledgeable look at movies and moviemaking." —Newsday

Before Francois Truffaut was a great director, he was a critic who stood at the vanguard, pioneering an innovative way to view movies and to write about the cinematic arts.

Now, for the first time in eBook, the legendary director shares his own words, as one of the most influential filmmakers of all time examines the art of movie-making through engaging and deeply personal reviews about the movies he loves.

Articulate and candid, The Films In My Life is for everyone who has sat in a dark movie theater and dreamed.
