The 400 Blows

The 400 Blows ★★★★½

this film takes the whole adolescence scope and flips it. when you’re a teen, it’s always “oh everyone treats me like an adult but i don’t know who i am” so and so. but when you’re around 10-12, no one takes you seriously. you’re just a kid in their eyes, which is partly true but you’re a kid trying to find your own voice, realizing adults are nearly as clueless as you and to stop listening and following their every word. it’s a scary concept growing up in a world like that and with stellar cinematography, the 400 blows nails that head-on.
