THE FINAL ENTRY OF THE SUMMER

Chosen as my concluding entry for two reasons:

1 - It was my biggest and best new discovery of the last 100 films and....

2 - I finally have a definitive favorite Truffaut film.












RATING: 9/10

  2. Now that's putting me on the spot ...Errr... I think I remember liking 'A Bout De Souffle', and my opinion of Jues et Jim varies from day to day depending on how annoying I find some of the various characters. I think I didn't like 400 blows and follow ups.. but I always struggle with those 'troubled kids, it's all the upbringing's fault'. I'm one of the few who like 'Fahrenheit 451'

    1. A bout de souffle is Godard... Sorry I feel very snobby for making that correction. Yeah, I really didn't like Jules and Jim and beyond this, I'd go with Shoot the Piano Player.
