Seattle Art Museum’s winter film series devoted to the great director of the French New Wave boasts just the right mixture of famous films (The 400 Blows, Shoot the Piano Player, Jules and Jim) and less-known ones (The English Girls, The Soft Skin, The Last Metro). If you can afford it, buy tickets for the whole series. Any film Truffaut made is worth watching, starting with tonight’s The 400 Blows, his 1959 masterpiece about a hell-raising Parisian adolescent, which tonight will be paired with his 1958 short Les Mistons.
