A film that starts with a distinct structure: Follow a counterfeit bill as it circulates and progressively becomes more vicious in its consequences. Right as you buy into that and the transitory rhythm of this film, Bresson does a COMPLETE 180 and decides to latch on to one single subject for an entire half of the runtime. Its truly a jarring shift in pace that I'm not sure many directors have ever been willing to take. Its a tough, manipulating watch.

Bresson's minimalism goes stale after a strong start that is unfortunately followed by dragging scenes without optimal plot development. Not convinced about the unconventional use of camera angles either. However, the total amount of screen time given to doors and other openings is noteworthy.

This is the evil version of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie." Somehow passing a counterfeit bill turns one of Bresson's robotic actors into a violent person. While money certainly can corrupt, the lack of logical progression totally derails the movie. I was also distracted by the camera staying on each scene some five seconds after all the characters had exited.

Money itself is somehow counterfeit: in some way the only thing that exists but equally a fiction, an artifice, founded on a belief but ultimately crediting only nothingness, found nowhere yet behind everything, a ghost in the machine but also, today, the deus ex machina itself. Counteracting that excess, Bresson's style here reaches a pinnacle of austerity (yet every moment also looks beautiful), which, from a certain perspective, may make it his best attempt to control the viewer's perception.

An accomplished film that seems to make a bit of a thing out of how the style reflects and corresponds to its main thematic concern of the apathy and deadness of culture-as-economy (I could make a sly little dig at Bresson here, if I so desired). Still, this coherency may be adequate to make a good art film, but I can't imagine it having any sort of real efficacy. So what's the point of having a point to make? A good excuse to blow bottles of wine with the culturally elite? Okay, I can dig that.

Bresson certainly didn't soften with age. His late works are his most grim, depicting a cold unforgiving world that traps its characters like rats in its bleak oppressive maze. L'argent is ostensibly a critique of capitalism, where a forged note sets a chain of events in motion that leaves complete devastation in its wake. Bresson directs with astonishing technical precision; his economy of gesture is unmatched in cinema, and L'argent is a chilling confirmation of his supreme formal mastery.

Very depressing and pessimistic lacking the transcendental qualities of his early works like "A Man..." and "Pickpocket". He underlines that in a totally reified world where money became "a God" (a line from the film) there is no human emotion or ethical act to be excepted. What we are doomed to is a violent and materialist world to suffer. No matter how strong it is narrated, I won't agree with that. If our doom is set, why bother anyways? Why did you make this film at the first hand? Decent.

Kind of went of the rails at the end in a very laughable way. I feel like if this didn't have Bresson's name on it it wouldn't be held in such regard, since there's been so many films like this that don't get the same love. Still, it's enjoyable and is a nice looking film.

As Bresson's final film, this really does take his style to it's logical conclusion as his most perfectly refined, austere work. That said, it might also be his driest and most dispassionate film, which for Bresson is saying a lot.

Bresson's last movie, he was 82 at the time of its release. Also, it's first of his movies I have seen. I found this film very interesting. It's based on Tolstoy's short story, so even without familiarity with director, I expected psychological, perhaps moralistic movie. The darkness of the film surprised me, probably in a good way.
