    What a fantastic interview. The entire book is formatted as a lengthy interview between Louis Malle and Philip French, who does not ask dumb questions and actually sounds quite well-informed, as well as quick as an interviewer. There's a lot of good background information that Malle shares about each of his films, the entire span of his career - about the actors he'd found, and his personal life incorporated into the films, his disagreements with American filmmmaking methods. The only shame is that the background he gives on each film makes me disappointed that some of his films aren't more readily available. But this is a must for enthusiastic fans.

    Great! Particularly good on Malle's interest in documentary, which I didn't know much about...

    Very sober man with clear intentions, reservations, concerns of his own work.
