“Uniquely ambitious, Rivette's film (technically a serial) spends nearly 13 hours stitching paranoia, loneliness, comedy, and mystical symbolism into a crazy quilt big enough to cover a generation.” - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
Saturday, January 7 at 10am | Perhaps film critic Alison Willmore described Jacques Rivette’s OUT 1 best when she said, “It requires a theater, and it requires opting in. After that, all that’s left is to surrender to a movie that’s like a new country ready to be explored.” Rivette’s ambitious and deeply satisfying work of unspooling and unscripted genius is set in Paris, where two theater groups each rehearse adaptations of plays by Aeschylus. The lives of the players start to intertwine, and Rivette uses the run time as a tool to build histories, creating a near-addictive experience for the audience, pulling the viewer into the intricacies of conversations, the nuances of characters, and the shifts within the story.
