Get you Truffaut.

People The late film critic Pauline Kael's personal library is now held in its entirety at Hampshire College in Boston, with all of her magin notes intact:
"Kael's marginalia are very much in the classic Pauline mode. Penciled in a quick, tight cursive, her comments favor the expressively expostulatory: ''gawd," ''oh my," ''huh?," ''poo," ''bull," ''good," ''Jesus!," ''he's right," ''ugh," ''yup," ''oh come on," ''??," and ''!" Peering at her emphatic scrawl, one can almost hear ''her sharp pencil rasping away," as David Thomson once described the auditory experience of sitting next to Kael at a screening."
The collection isn't static and is in heavy use by students.
