It has been said that Cahiers du cinéma is the most influential French film magazine. While I do not wish to contradict this, Jahsonic readers may find the equally French film magazine Midi- Minuit Fantastique more entertaining. [Jul 2006]

Cahiers du Cinéma, cover of issue 130


Cahiers du cinéma is an influential French film magazine founded in 1951 by André Bazin, Jacques Doniol-Valcroze and Lo Duca. It was a development from the earlier magazine Revue du Cinéma and the members of two Paris film clubs - Objectif 49 (Bresson, Cocteau and Alexandre Astruc, etc.) and Ciné-Club du Quartier Latin. Initially edited by Eric Rohmer (Maurice Scherer) it included amongst its writers Jacques Rivette, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol and François Truffaut.

The critical writing of Cahiers re-invented the basic tenets of film criticism (auteurs, mise-en-scène, la critique des beautés etc.) and film scholarship - establishing the 'value' of the Hollywood films of Alfred Hitchcock and Howard Hawks then directors including Robert Aldrich, Nicholas Ray, Fritz Lang, and Anthony Mann, as well as Jean Renoir, Roberto Rossellini, Kenji Mizoguchi, Max Ophuls, and Jean Cocteau. While also attacking the existing French directors (La qualité francaise - novelization, over-elaboration etc.). The magazine also created the Nouvelle Vague or New Wave of French cinema, which was largely directed by ex-writers of the magazine.

After being reactionary and isolated in the 1950s the replacement of Rohmer by Jacques Rivette in 1963 meant that the magazine staff were more sensitive to political and social trends as well as responding more to non-Hollywood films. The style moved through literary modernism in the early 1960s to radicalism and "dialectical materialism" by 1970 and through the mid-70s the magazine was run by a Maoist collective. A return to more commercial perspectives in the late 1970s, marked by a review of Jaws, and a more organised turnover of editors (Serge Daney, Serge Toubiana, Thierry Jousse, Antoine de Baecque, and Charles Tesson) meant the rehabilitation of some of the old Cahiers favourites as well as some new names (like de Oliveira, Raúl Ruíz, Hsiao-hsien, Chahine, and Pialat). More recent writers have included Serge Daney, Serge Toubiana, Thierry Jousse, Antoine de Baecque, Charles Tesson and Franck Nouchi, Andre Techine, Leos Carax, Olivier Assayas, Danièle Dubroux, and Serge Le Peron.

In 1998, the Editions de l'Etoile (the company publishing Cahiers) was acquired by the press group Le Monde. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cahiers_du_Cinema [Oct 2004]

Film critics vs film reviewers

Film critics should be distinguished from film reviewers. Most people who call themselves film critics and publish commentary on films in periodicals are actually film reviewers. A film criticism is actually more closely aligned with philosophy than it is commentary. The film critic tries to come to understand why film works, how it works, and what effects it has on people. --http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_criticism, Sept 2003, see also Film Theory

In 1954, Jonas Mekas published the first issue of Film Culture, America's iconoclastic answer to Cahiers du Cinéma.

Top Ten Lists 1951-1997

(Most of the following lists were compiled by Steve Erickson: "Lists from the '50s and '60s are taken from the anthologies edited by Jim Hillier. The rest of the lists are taken from the magazine itself. Between 1969 and 1981, it didn't publish Top 10 lists. When available, I've used American titles for the films.")
