Have you advance-ordered your copy? I have. This was the best film I saw on the big screen last year, and I’ve thought about it more than any other film since.
If you don’t know about this film, just read the 100% positive reviews from the Online Film Critics Society.
Bresson is one of the few directors for whom cinema was both an aesthetic and spiritual pursuit, a search that was reflected in films for which the words ‘sublime,’ ‘transcendent’ and ‘masterpiece’ can seem somehow lacking. – Manhola Darghis, The Los Angeles Times
Bresson is one of the saints of the cinema, and Au Hasard Balthazar is his most heartbreaking prayer. – Roger Ebert
The supreme masterpiece by one of the greatest of 20th-century filmmakers. – J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
