Loosely inspired by Feodor Dostoyevsky's novel "Crime and Punishment," "Pickpocket" (1959) is a cinema verite classic in the cannon of French film. Director Robert Bresson chose Uruguayan nonactor Martin LaSalle for his leading man in Pickpocket, hiring a genuine pickpocket as "technical adviser" so the star could learn the art of lifting wallets. The film follows the cocky young criminal who becomes so obsessed with picking pockets that he literally can't stop himself. "Pickpocket" was released in the U.S. in 1963, and on DVD in 2005.
