A MAN ESCAPED (THURSDAY)
THURSDAY, Jan. 17 9 PM. (1956 Robert Bresson) "Boils a true-story prison break down to its bare necessities...and focuses, single-mindedly and laserlike, on every painstaking preparation for an exit strategy....Only an artist can take these elements and, having escaped from the tyranny of Hollywood-ish excess, fashion them into a tale of genuine grace under pressure....Sparseness can be rich beyond belief; the proof is now unspooling before your very eyes." (David Fear, Time Out New York) 1.33 99 MIN. B&W. In French with English subtitles.
