Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theatre company living under the German occupation during World War II in François Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds—a Jewish theatre manager in hiding; a leading man who's in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight—the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro (Le dernier métro) is Truffaut's ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.

Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece about lonely, disturbed motelier Norman Bates and his unhealthy mother fixation continues to shock after more than 50 years. Shot on a shoestring against studio wishes, Psycho would go on to become his most successful film and leave a lasting impression on film history. Its various innovations include the pivotal switching of audience identification figures, and its adherence to the principles of psychoanalysis. But regardless of its technical brilliance and lasting influence, it's the immediacy of Psycho as a visceral experience that ensures it continued classic status.

Truffaut followed up the international phenomenon Jules et Jim with this tense tale of infidelity. The unassuming Jean Desailly is perfectly cast as a celebrated literary scholar, seemingly happily married, who embarks on a dangerous affair with a gorgeous stewardess, played by Françoise Dorléac. Truffaut made The Soft Skin at a time when he was immersing himself in the work of Alfred Hitchcock, and that master's influence can be felt throughout this complex French New Wave treasure.

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and a 30-year-old François Truffaut sequestered themselves in a windowless Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation. The result: the seminal book "Hitchcock/Truffaut," published a half century ago, dissecting every film Hitchcock had made until then, illuminating his masterful techniques, making the case for the popular director as an artist, and influencing generations of filmmakers. Kent Jones brings this “Bible of Cinema" to invigorating life in his entrancing documentary.

François Truffaut's first feature is also his most personal. Told from the point of view of Truffaut's cinematic counterpart, Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), The 400 Blows (Les quatre cents coups) sensitively re-creates the trials of Truffaut's own childhood, unsentimentally portraying aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marked Truffaut's passage from leading critic to trailblazing auteur of the French New Wave.
