Robert Bresson Links

I sometimes wonder why Robert Bresson's films, in spite of being so precise, stripped down and without frills, are so interesting to see. This sequence from Pickpocket has every answer. See the action and the faces, and of course the hands.

Here is a small TV interview with Bresson. Here is a transcript of a long interview that appears in the book, Encountering Directors. and this is an absolute tribute to Bresson (link via).
