Martin Kessler and David Blakeslee shimmy across a line between two towering films by certified auteur Robert Bresson, Pickpocket and A Man Escaped; at the 63rd and 69th spots on the Sight & Sound list respectively. They examine Bresson’s style & technique, the plausibility of A Man Escaped, consider if Bresson is more theatrical than he may lead us to believe, and examine Bresson’s (in)famous approach to performers. Will both Bresson films prove worthy of their position on the Sight & Sound list and escape to freedom, or be condemned to movie prison?  And where does Bresson’s reputation stand? They shall discuss.

After that they close things out with some final notes of positivity:

David’s final note of positivity

Martin’s final note of positivity
