FOUR NIGHTS OF A DREAMER
Bresson | 1971 | France | 87m
“Bresson”
6:50, 9:15 at BAM

“At once the most maligned of Bresson’s films and the most ignored. Cinema has dealt with youth since its beginnings, but it’s difficult to think of another movie that is so attentive to the budding consciousness of postadolescence, the sense of a person still in the process of forming, latching on to routines, charmed objects and fixations as a part of that process. Few films have ever been so devoted to secretive gazing, and visualized it so well. Watching these two beautiful creatures play hide and seek with the world is one of the loveliest things in all of Bresson.”
Kent Jones, Film Comment (May/June 1999) [Read More]
