THE 400 BLOWS Jean-Pierre Leaud, Claire Maurier (1959, Voyager, wide-screen, B&W, unrated, subtitled, $49.95) JULES AND JIM Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner (1962, Voyager, wide-screen, B&W, unrated, subtitled, $49.95) Both of these seminal Truffaut movies-emotionally painful portraits of a budding delinquent and a disintegrating love triangle-may already be available on tape, but the dual, alternate-audio-track commentaries added for these laserdiscs (one in French, the other in English) make them vastly superior video collectibles. Longtime Truffaut associates share the microphone with astute critics for a combination of biography and visual exegesis that is truly magnifique. Both: A+ -Steve Daly
