Lancelot du Lac (1974)

Robert Bresson’s haunting and sparse style is, as always, transcendent. Given Bresson’s mastery of Black & White cinema, the bright red blood in the few moments of stylized violence comes across as quite shocking. The ethereal, other-worldy pacing is mesmerizing. The way the camera lingers on the immanent physical details of a scene combined with the signature use of off-screen sound creates a truly magical effect.

I was so transported by the brilliant technique that I was inspired to revisit Paul Schrader’s “Transcendental Style in Film.”
