Did You Know?
Like Fellini, I think that the "noble" film is the trap of traps, the sneakiest swindle in the industry. For a real film-maker, nothing could be more boring to make than a "Bridge On The River Kwai" - scenes set inside office alternating with discussions between old fogies and some action scenes usually filmed by another crew. Rubbish, traps for fools, Oscar machines.
The teenage Truffaut was involved in juvenile petty theft, incidences of violence defiance of authority, and disciplinary incarceration.
