This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the work of Robert Bresson, one of the most respected and acclaimed directors in the history of cinema. The first monograph on his work to appear in English for many years dealing not only with his thirteen feature-length films but also hislittle-seen early short Affaires publiques and his short treatise Notes on cinematography. The films are considered in chronological order, using a perspective that draws variously on spectator theory, Catholic mysticism, gender theory and Lacanian psychoanalysis. The major critical responses to hiswork, from the adulatory to the dismissive, are summarized and analyzed. The work includes a full filmography and a critical bibliography.
