The Trial of Joan of Arc

The Trial of Joan of Arc ★★★★★

First impression is just that this is one of the best films I have ever seen. Bresson’s use of sound here is especially interesting given what he consistently said about his use of sound being minimal on Notes on the Cinematograph, but it works completely regardless. Soul-piercing. Aligns a lot with what I love so much about Straub/Huillet’s Antigone!
