Jean-Luc Godard once said that Robert Bresson  "…is to French cinema what Mozart is to German music and Dostoyevsky is to Russian literature." The Gene Siskel Film Center is hosting a series of films in tribute to the legendary French director that runs through February 29. Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik of Facets Multi-media, discusses Bresson's life and work.
