Pickpocket

Dir. Jia Zhangke (1997). The other Pickpocket, titled in tribute to Robert Bresson, is Jia Zhangke’s first feature; known in Chinese as Xiao Wu, it's a remarkable, semi-documentary immersion in backwater urban low-life tracking a supremely diffident thief from the filmmaker’s home town of Fenyang as he fails to adapt to China’s rapidly liberalizing economy.
