Poetic Realism and a Few Drinks

An article about films of Aki Kaurismaki (whose Leningrad Cowboys Go America I enjoyed) by Adrian Martin. From Poetic Realism and a Few Drinks:

"Kaurismaki has pulled off the hardest homage of all: his model is Robert Bresson, who preached that actors should be used as models, mere figures (Ariel offers the strongest evidence of this influence). But Kaurismaki is a secular, not a mystical Bresson, and he has miraculously reworked his idol’s stern syntax into his own, lyrical language."
