2:00, 4:30, 6:50, 9:15 at BAMCinématek [Program & Tix]

PICKPOCKET
Bresson | 1959 | France | 75m
“Bresson”
2:00, 4:30, 6:50, 9:15 at BAM

“All incidental anecdote and psychology has been stripped away. Employing few establishing shots and little camera movement, Bresson distills narrative down to a particular essence of looks, gestures, and precisely placed audio effects. Pickpocket might be described as a solemn carnival of souls. There’s something almost medieval about it. The city is inhabited by angels—fallen and otherwise. These unstoppable blank-faced thieves descend like a plague upon the world. Ultimately inexplicable, this concentrated, elliptical, economical movie is an experience that never loses its strangeness.” – J. Hoberman, The Village Voice [Read More]
