Pickpocket

Buy Tickets

(1959) dir Robert Bresson w/Martin LaSalle [75 min; 35mm; in French with English subtitles]
PICKPOCKET is one of the great Robert Bresson’s best-known and most important films. It tells the tale of Michel, a bored and self-centered man who takes up picking pockets almost as a hobby and winds up finding it the only thing in his life with any meaning. A powerful and moving portrait of a man searching for answers in a world where none may exist.

“I was a kleptomaniac in the third grade,’ begins Bridget Foster Reed in her Brattle Film Notes essay on Robert Bresson’s PICKPOCKET. Read more” →
