Jacques Rivette

“What's important for me in a film is that it be alive, that it be imbued with presence, which is basically the same thing. And that this presence, inscribed within the film, possesses a form of magic. There's something profoundly mysterious in this.”

    DUELLE

    Jacques Rivette France, 1976

    A phantasmagoric noir from Jacques Rivette, whose free-form tales of conspiracy and game-playing inspire clandestine fervor. Rivette followed his masterpiece Celine and Julie Go Boating with Duelle, championed by the Quinzaine, and starring the great Juliet Berto and Bulle Ogier.

    BERENICE

    Éric Rohmer France, 1954

    Before Claire’s knee, there were Bérénice’s teeth! Based on an Edgar Allan Poe story, Éric Rohmer’s bold, early short is a tale of obsession that feels distinctly more sinister than his later films. Shot in André Bazin’s house, photographed and edited by Jacques Rivette, and starring Rohmer himself.

    THE KREUTZER SONATA

    Éric Rohmer France, 1956

    Produced by Jean-Luc Godard, who also plays a supporting role, this 16mm short by French master Éric Rohmer jumps between the interiors of Paris’ 1950s apartments—with a glimpse of the Cahiers du Cinéma offices!—and its charming boulevards. Featuring cameos by Claude Chabrol and François Truffaut.

    OUT 1, NOLI ME TANGERE - EPISODES 1 & 2

    Jacques Rivette France, 1971

    Here it is: the “Holy Grail of cinephilia!” One of the most enthralling cinematic experiences of all time, Jacques Rivette’s elusive 13-hour masterpiece Out 1 was originally conceived as a series. The film version consists of 8 feature-length episodes, and it all begins right here. Get ready…

    OUT 1, NOLI ME TANGERE - EPISODES 7 & 8

    Jacques Rivette France, 1971

    Even Out 1 has an end! Rivette’s mammoth film ironically fell into obscurity after its premiere, remaining invisible for decades. It’s been a long-time dream of ours to present this ghostly pinnacle of the French New Wave in its entirety—a prodigiously playful new kind of epic. Happy binge-watching.
