Before turning to filmmaking, Francois Truffaut was a film critic writing for Cahiers du Cinema during the 1950s. The Early film Criticism of Francois Truffaut makes available, for the first time in English, articles that originally appeared in French journals such as Cahiers du Cinema and Arts. Truffaut discusses films by such acknowledged masters as Hitchcock, Huston, Dymytryk, and Lang, but also examines the work of such lesser-known directors as Robert Wise, Don Weis, and Roger Vadim.

"The 60 film reviews in this volume ... mark a delightful and significant addition to the great French filmmaker's canon... But what makes the book enjoyable is Truffaut's often witty and provocative writing." - Publishers Weekly " ... an excellent read ... enjoyable and insightful ... " - Sight and Sound
