Christmas on screen

It’s that time of year when certain cinematic favourites turn up as inevitably as a Yuletide hangover. It may be the season of goodwill, but it can also be a time of loneliness, sadness, tension, regret and reflection. Accordingly, this month’s daily screenings of classic movies include both celebrations of comfort and joy and other, more ambivalent responses to the Christmas experience.

The Films in Truffaut’s Life

A lifelong cinephile, François Truffaut first attracted attention as a critic. Besides writing reviews for Cahiers du cinéma and Arts-Lettres-Spectacles, he famously attacked le cinéma de papa, developed la politique des auteurs and, after turning to filmmaking, produced a book of his interviews with Alfred Hitchcock. This month’s daily screenings of classics feature some of the films and directors he particularly admired.
