Pick up this week’s Isthmus to read reviews of Kent Jones’s Hitchcock/Truffaut and Miguel Gomes’s Arabian Nights by Madison Film Forum‘s own James Kreul.

Hitchcock/Truffaut examines the relationship between Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock and French New Wave filmmaker and critic François Truffaut which led to the publication of their book length interview (now popularly known as Hitchcock/Truffaut) in 1966. The UW Cinematheque screens Hitchcock/Truffaut on Friday, January 22 at 7:00pm in 4070 Vilas Hall.

Miguel Gomes examines the consequences of austerity policies in Portugal by mixing fiction and non-fiction narrative modes in Arabian Nights, one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2015. The UW Cinematheque screens Arabian Nights on Saturday, January 22 at 1:00pm in 4070 Vilas Hall—the three part film runs a total of 6 1/2 hours.
