USA A Man Escaped (1956) (The Criterion Collection) - March 26, 2013

A Man Escaped (1956)

Disc Features
New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
Bresson: Without a Trace, a 1965 episode of the television program Cinéastes de notre temps in which the director gives his first on-camera interview
The Essence of Forms, a forty-five-minute documentary from 2010 in which some of Bresson’s collaborators and admirers, including actor François Leterrier and director Bruno Dumont, share their thoughts about the director and his work
New visual essay with text by film scholars David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson
New English subtitle translation
PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Tony Pipolo
With the simplest of concepts and sparest of techniques, Robert Bresson made one of the most suspenseful jailbreak films of all time in A Man Escaped. Based on the memoirs of an imprisoned French resistance leader, this unbelievably taut and methodical marvel follows the fictional Fontaine's single-minded pursuit of freedom, detailing the planning and carrying out of his escape with gripping precision. But Bresson's film is not merely process-minded—it's a work of intense spirituality and humanity.

Pleased to see the Gaumont doc from their French BD is also on this disc...hopefully the A/V presentation will be superior. I will of course be buying.
