To relieve cinema still withdrawing following the fall of FilmStruck, the Criterion Channel launched today, which means that most of the Criterion Collection's catalog of classical art cinema (over 1,000) has been launched. film is now available for streaming. So where should you start? For relative severity, we chose one of a masterpiece from 50 renowned directors. And then, to encourage competitors, we also listed all the other films made by each director on the channel. Think of these as starting points, the dynamics of cinematological portals of the work of the most important filmmakers at all times. You might be lost for days.

The 400 Blows (François Truffaut)
With Truffaut, why not start at the beginning? This play in 1959 is the first master of the French New Waves and is perhaps his most personal film, based on his childhood. One of the most interesting things about the Criterion version is the archival material including: extracts from Truffaut interviews from the, 60s, news footage of the film's screening, and trial footage of its stars.
