Rarely has a filmmaker benefitted more from repeated viewings than Robert Bresson, whose spiritual films are often purposefully devoid of obvious style or excessive flair, forcing the viewer to glean meaning from the absence of spectacle or performance. Perhaps that is why it has taken so long for anyone to attempt a comprehensive critical analysis of Bresson's 13 films, which include A MAN ESCAPED, PICKPOCKET and AU HASARD BALTHAZAR. Tony Pipolo, a renowned film scholar and psychoanalyst, finally corrects this glaring oversight in film scholarship with this exceptional dissection of Bresson's career, which examines the sources of the films, Bresson's connection to his characters, and the complex psychological signs which Bresson brilliantly hid in plain sight. Pipolo reveals Bresson as a cinematic sculptor, meticulously whittling away the superficial elements of his films until he exposed the moral core.
