Robert Bresson: A Passion for Film looks at the great filmmaker's body of work not only by coming to terms with its thematic preoccupations and the development of its unique authorial style, but also in terms of the ouevre's seminal place in the history of film. The filmic rhetoric that Bresson pursued was nothing less than an effort to create film narrative's exemplary form, throwing off the conventions of the theater and acting that still dominatemainstream filmmaking. In this respect, Bresson's films are no less ground-breaking than those of D.W. Griffith and Sergei Eisenstein, whose formal innovations have been thoroughly explored. Wonderfully written and subtle in its exploration of literary models and source material, Pipolo's book is the first full
monograph dedicated to Bresson. A thorough portrait, Bresson's sources, style, and biography are explored via a chronological investigation of his films, yielding a rich analysis worthy of this master filmmaker.
