Shoot the Piano Player
Dir. Francois Truffaut (1960). Although it has been overrated by the director's cultists, Truffaut's second film, which stars sad-eyed Charles Aznavour as a pianist with a past, is a freer work than The 400 Blows. It's an odd pastiche of a gangster movie, lively and entertaining, but also uneven and disjointed.
