Luna Palace Cinemas says
A stunning season of 11 ALFRED HITCHCOCK classics all presented in pristine digital

Also included Australian premiere screenings of the brilliant new documentary “HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT”
In 1962 Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting—used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut—this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.

“This superb film, by Kent Jones, adds three more layers to the book’s alluvial wisdom: stunning clips from Hitchcock features, audio clips from the original conversations and fascinating comments by contemporary directors.” WALL ST JOURNAL.

“If you’re a classic movie buff, this is a must-see.” ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.

“This is a jewel box of a movie for anyone who loves either Hitchcock or Truffaut–or better yet, both.” TIME.

“A landmark film book gets its just deserts. The cleverly curated clips are stunning and the analysis thought-provoking in this richly rewarding piece.” EMPIRE.
