One does not create by adding, but by taking away. A system does not regulate everything. Find some kind of beauty.
Pretty useless restrictions, I thought what did any of it have to do with telling a good story? He is truly an essential figure in the arts, and one can’t help to think that the cinema was made for artists like Bresson.
Also it’s just really breezy–the amount of time between when I started the book and when I “finished” it is substantial in terms of when I literally started and stopped but it only took like three actual sittings to read the whole thing cover to cover Against the tactics of speed, of noise, set tactics of slowness, of silence.
The least fat of the two did get Hilary Duff into The Smiths. He contributed notably to the art of film and influenced the French New Wave.
Among other things, these aphorisms, paragraphs, include an approach to actors Bresson calls them “models” and would reject “acting” almost entirely as a baleful hangover from the stage.

Two types of film: Some might rely on what comes from elsewhere cool soundtracks. Huge Bresson fan; laud the ethos behind his approach to filmmaking; seen em all; respect the man immensely – I’m going to be the detractor on this one; unfortunately this collection of notes doesn’t really do much.

There must be nothing extraneous or redundant: The sole purpose of Bressonian film is the frame, the model, the action as opposed to the actor.
Like they haven’t ever listened to themselves! Like someone else’s train of thought that would cross stations with what I think about a lot. The illusion of reality thus becomes dispelled, and belief in the truth of the images no longer possible.
Bresson’s attempts to express the ineffable “soul” of his filmmaking in words is largely pointless and doomed to frustration.

Books by Robert Bresson. I agree with the man’s ideas on a fundamental level; I would even go as far as to say that the principles he suggests here are most constructive for any aspiring cinematographer, or photographer looking for insight into the world of cinema. To attain that ‘heart of the heart’ which does not let itself be caught either by poetry, or by philosophy, or by drama. It’s obvious that no one can emulate Bresson, but it still proves to be helpful to anyone that wants to start small.
