Truffaut, François. The Films in My Life – quote from and epigraphs

When I was a critic, I thought that a successful film had simultaneously to express an idea of the world and an idea of cinema; La Règle du Jeu and Citizen Kane corresponded to this definition perfectly. Today, I demand that a film express either the joy of making cinema or the agony of making cinema. I am not at all interested in anything in between; I am not interested in all those films that do not pulse.

Epigraphs:
I believe a work is good to the degree that it expresses the man who created it.

These books were alive and they spoke to me.
