Top 5 Film Books / Kent Jones Interview (Hitchcock/Truffaut)

It may not be quite as momentous as Hitchcock and Truffaut getting together in 1962, but on this week's show, Adam speaks with HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT director Kent Jones about the legacy of Truffaut's seminal film book about the Master of Suspense. Plus, Adam and Josh take care of the holiday shopping for the budding film snob in your life with their own Top 5 Film Books.

This episode is brought to you by MUBI, Audible and Vermont College of Fine Art MFA.
