I love Truffaut's work. It is all one work, really. I like that in a writer or filmmaker. People rarely have more than one thing to write from the gut, even if they write it in pieces, or while purportedly telling other people's stories. Given that I see Truffaut's work as a continuum, I have to judge it great, just like Allen's or Bergman's work. A total auteur.
