  • The Trial of Joan of Arc (Bresson, 1962)

    John Donne once wrote, "I am a little world made cunningly," suggesting that the complexity of the world is contained in microcosm in the human spirit. There is a depth and complexity to Joan that is evoked through her words and transcends the wit or cleverness that might be conveyed were the film to try to show it directly rather than by implication.
