"Stolen Kisses" by François Truffaut
(France 1968; 91 min)
Jean-Pierre Léaud returns as the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Antoine Doinel, now dishonorably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he stumbles into the unlikely profession of private detective. Whimsical, nostalgic, and irrepressibly romantic, "Stolen Kisses" is Truffaut’s timeless ode to the passion and impetuosity of youth.
"The Quiller Memorandum" by Michael Anderson
(UK, 1966; 1hr 45 min)
Two British agents are murdered by a mysterious Neonazi organization in West Berlin, and American agent Quiller is sent to investigate, soon becoming involved in a dangerous contest. With its gritty, real-world depiction of contemporary international espionage, this film was one of the more notable “anti-Bond” films of the 1960s. Noted for its plot twists and the portrayal of Quiller as refreshingly vulnerable and occasionally inept. Starring George Segal, Alec Guinness, and Max von Sydow.
"Trainspotting" by Danny Boyle
(UK 1996; 1hr 34 min)
A wild, freeform, Rabelaisian trip through the darkest recesses of Edinburgh low-life, focusing on Mark Renton and his attempt to give up his heroin habit, and how it affects his relationship with family and friends: Sean Connery wannabe Sick Boy, dimbulb Spud, psycho Begbie, 14-year-old girlfriend Diane, and clean-cut athlete Tommy, who's never touched drugs but can't help being curious about them...
"The Wild Child" by François Truffaut
(France 1970; 1hr 23 min)
This is the essentially true story of a "wolf boy" who lived like an animal in the woods, and about the doctor who adopted him and tried to civilize him. Truffaut tells the story simply and movingly. It becomes his most thoughtful statement on his favorite subject: The way young people grow up, explore themselves, and attempt to function creatively in the world.
