The 100 Blows.

Head over to PopMatters where we're still counting down on the 100 greatest directors of all time.

This time around I discussed Francois Truffaut one of my three all time favorite directors. It's so tough not to be extremely reverential when you love someone like I love him. Sigh.

With that said, have you been reading the series?
What's your favorite Truffaut movie?

"Jules and Jim.". I also loved "Day for Night"....and others!

Can't argue with those choices, Tom!

I'd say Day for Night is my favourite too, even though it's less indicative of his career as a whole.

I haven't read your post at Pop Matters yet, but I have say, he's in my top five directors of all time too. I was blown away (no pun intended) by The 400 Blows.
I think it's one of the most moving films ever made about children. said...

The chap is completely right, and there's no skepticism.
