Robert Bresson, published in 1998, remains one of the most acclaimed and thorough examinations of the French director’s vision and style. Robert Bresson (Revised) reproduces essential contributions from the original edition, including essays by Susan Sontag, André Bazin, P. Adams Sitney, and Kristin Thompson, and features new or original material by David Bordwell, Mark Rappaport, Shigehiko Hasumi, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Serge Daney, Jean-Michel Frodon, Colin Burnett, Richard Suchenski, and filmmakers Jean-Pierre Gorin and the Dardenne brothers, Jean-Pierre and Luc. With more than thirty key articles by leading critics and scholars, interviews, commentaries by important contemporary filmmakers, and an illuminating symposium on the director’s current stature, Robert Bresson (Revised) is an invaluable volume for anyone seeking to understand the director’s austere perfectionism and the beauty of his singular body of work.

Published by the Toronto International Film Festival and distributed in Canada by Wilfrid Laurier University Press. Distributed outside Canada by Indiana University Press.
