Synopsis: Robert Bresson's NOTES ON CINEMATOGRAPHY are working memos that the great French director made for his own use. In all of them, Bresson reflects with a craftsman's insight on techniques - and beyond techniques to their philosophical and aesthetic implications. Not surprisingly, these acute reflections will not only sharpen a filmmaker's sensibility, but that of any artist in any medium. Bresson makes some radical distinctions between what he terms "cinematography" and something quite different: "cinema" - which for him is nothing but an attempt to photograph theater and use it for the screen.
