Francois Truffaut: Stolen Portraits

An excellent 1993 talking-heads documentary by former Cahiers du Cinema editor Serge Toubiana and Michel Pascal about the most popular French New Wave filmmaker, with clips as well as interviews. Like so much involving Truffaut—including the more recent and much more detailed Truffaut biography coauthored by Toubiana—this tends to be fairly noncritical about his work, but it has plenty of interesting things to say about his life, including the identity of his father and Truffaut's methodical keeping of dossiers on his friends and colleagues.
