Robert Bresson

Bresson Retrospective at BFI. Gilbert Adair does a fine essay in the Guardian today:

The supreme genius of cinema

I have the DVD of Au Hasard Balthazar (1966). I'm one of those who doesn't like the amateur acting. It would be interesting to know if he encouraged the actors to act in that deadpan manner, or whether that is all they could come up with. As Adair says, the star is Balthazar herself.
