IDMB Episode 110 - Introduction to Francois Truffaut (featuring Robert Hornak of More Than One Lesson)
College Jim would be so pissed that (Pretending to Be) Adult Jim is covering the French New Wave! Robert Hornak stops by I Do Movies Badly to both round out appearances by the MTOL team and recommend some films from arguably the most iconic director to emerge from La Nouvelle Vague. The boys discuss the cultural and artistic background of the New Wave filmmakers, what spoiled it for all of us (*cough*Godard*cough*), and how Truffaut's vibrancy and truth separated him from his peers. For proof, Robert recommends: The 400 Blows (1959), Shoot the Piano Player (1960), and Day For Night (1973).
