If you have yet to see the tragic documentary Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father, I urge you to go seek it out without getting informed in terms of any sort of plot.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
