Citizen Langlois


Time Out says

Cozarinsky's documentary portrait of Henri Langlois, the great film historian, archivist and co-founder (with Georges Franju, seen interviewed here) of the Cinémathèque Française, is respectful, informative but never hagiographic. Langlois had an importance unthinkable in Britain - the French government's attempt to dismiss him from the Cinémathèque was one of the key events in the ferment of 1968 - and his progress from amateur collector to nouvelle vague hero and friend of the stars is related with wit and sensitivity, complete with clips from some of the movies he rescued, fascinating interviews and home-movies (Langlois with Mekas and Ginsberg!).
