Reviews of the "young turks" from Cahiers Jan 52 to Apr 59

This posting purports to be little other than a list of films reviewed in the pages of Cahiers du Cinema from issue number 8, Jan 52, through April 59, by the "second group" or "young turks". Thus, François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Eric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette, Jean Domarchi, Jean Douchet, Luc Moullet, Louis Marcorelles and Charles Bitsch. I have also chosen to include Chris Marker's lone review from that Jan 52 issue and Jean Mambrino lone review published in May 58. Cahiers at that time published either long reviews under the rubric "Les Films" or shorter - one column or less - under the rubric "Notes on other films". The reviews that were published as "Notes" are highlighted in red.
