What I’m watching…François Truffaut documentary: ‘La Leçon de Cinema’

 

The documentary examines Truffaut’s life and career in astonishing totality, highlighting selected clips from many of his best and most-loved films, including under-appreciated gems like his crackerjack movie-within-a-movie, Day for Night, and his tender and insightful portrait of married ennui, Bed and Board. The layer of Truffaut’s generally affable public persona is also peeled back a bit, revealing the complicated, often moody artist who existed beneath the veneer.
