Francois Truffaut’s last interview

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 19, 2010

The New Yorker has published an interview with Francois Truffaut conducted before his death in 1984.

Cardullo centers the conversation around Truffaut’s first feature film, “The 400 Blows,” the overwhelming success of which, in 1959, was a key moment in the launching of the French New Wave. As such, he gets Truffaut to talk about what went into the beginning of his career and how his filmmaking process was influenced by his years of work as a film critic and his lifelong obsession with watching movies.
