“The Cahiers gang – Truffaut, Godard, Chabrol et al – were critics who turned into great film-makers. What happened to bring a generation of writers to cross the line and produce such a vital, critically grounded cinema, and why has it happened so little since, especially in the UK? Who among today’s film critics could, or would, emulate their achievement (celebrated last month in Part One of our ongoing Nouvelle Vague season)? Tracing the historical forces at play, and reading between the lines, Nick James welcomes Geoffrey Nowell-Smith, Emilie Bickerton, Ginette Vincendeau and Mark Betz.”
