France | 1959 | b&w | dir. Robert Bresson, with Martin LaSalle, Marika Green, Jean Pélégri

Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Robert Bresson’s Pickpocket is a terse, intense portrait of a solitary young man who embarks upon a life of petty theft. With a pared-down cinematic style and meticulously choreographed scenes of audacious robberies that lend the film a remarkable and thrilling sense of authenticity, Bresson captures the young man’s escalating addiction.
