Francois Truffaut - Shooting a Movie“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 Regle 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 interested in anything in between; I am not interested in all those films that do not pulse.” –François Truffaut
