Product description

Product Description

The Jacques Rivette Collection brings together some of the director s hardest to see works, each restored, newly translated and debuting on home video for the first time in UK.

Out 1 is one of the crowning achievements of Rivette s remarkable career. Conceived as a television mini-series, this near-thirteen-hour monolith consists of eight feature-length episodes revolving around two theatre troupes, blackmail and conspiracy. Multiple characters introduce multiple plotlines, weaving a rich tapestry across an epic runtime.

Originally screened just the once in its full-length version in 1971, Out 1 was then re-conceived by Rivette as a four-and-a-half-hour feature and re-named Out 1: Spectre to acknowledge its shadow-like nature. Both are presented in this boxed-set, fully restored and with newly-translated English subtitles.

Complementing Out 1 are two parallel films , Duelle (une quarantaine) and Noroît (une vengeance). The former sees Rivette head into fantasy territory: the Queen of the Sun (Bulle Ogier) and the Queen of the Night (Juliet Berto) search for a magical diamond in present-day Paris. The latter is a loose adaptation of The Revenger s Tragedy and a pirate tale, starring Geraldine Chaplin (Nashville, Cría cuervos). Also included is Merry-Go-Round, in which Joe Dallesandro (Flesh for Frankenstein) and Maria Schneider (The Passenger, Last Tango in Paris) are summoned to Paris, kickstarting the most surreal of all Rivette s mysteries.

The picture quality of these movies is simply amazing. Rivette's cinema [more specifically OUT 1] is one of the greatest and powerful cinematic experiences in cinema and art in general. Once you see this movie you'll be in another level cinematically speaking.
Thanks again Arrow for bringing us great cinema/kino/cine/...who's next, Fassbinder?

Not a review of OUT 1 which is what it is but a statement of the obvious - this is a large and expensive item and unless you watch it immediately you won't identify defects, such as Out Spectre sticking at 1 min 22. It's too much of a bother to return such a large item, with proof of postage, just to possibly get a replacement which might be defective in some other way. The DVD is not scratched but defective. Thankfully so far Out 1 proper is not defective. Having watched the first 3 I can confirm that Spectre is a phantom of the real thing. Wonderful cinema!

It should be fairly obvious to anybody who shows an interest in this boxset, that Rivette's films pose challenges as well as providing delights for the discerning cineaste. The extended (original) version of Out 1 (Noli Me Tangere) is a notorious case in point, particularly with regards to the lengthy scenes of theatrical rehearsal and improvisation. However, if you are bullish and open-minded in your appreciation of film, you should find plenty to love and enjoy in this fabulous package.

That which was most surprising to me, was the unexpected joy of Rivette's less infamous mid-70s films. Duelle and Noroit were especially fascinating, innovative and bewitching. Rivette was as playful a filmmaker as I have ever experienced, dealing with weighty metaphysical themes with the deft hand of a cinematic aesthete who is comfortable with having a giggle at himself and at everybody else. The relish for our natural environment, humanity's erotic obsessions and our innate curiosity for the mysteries embedded within the most mundane aspects of our everyday lives, are present throughout the films contained in this boxset.

Rivette's most significant work in this box remains Out 1: Spectre, his radically re-cut version of the original Out 1. The ability to change the mood, tone and texture of the piece through such skillful manipulation provides ample evidence of Rivette's supreme talent as a filmmaker. He is aided and abetted by Berto, Ogier, Leaud and Lonsdale (alongside other cast members) who all give brave and liberated performances.

So, are questions of Rivette's difficulty somewhat beside the point? I think they might be. Put simply, Rivette is unique and peerless in his approach to the art of cinema.

Shooting in 16 mm in the late 60s-the norm in the TV industry-was an attempt to take film closer to the Real, which Rivette and Godard were doing. In L’amour fou(1969) Rivette 16 mm represents the footage shot by a TV crew documenting the rehearsal process where a group of actors rehearse Shakespeare’s Pericles. In Out1 the 16 mm format was not a tool designed to document the work of the actors, but was dictated by the mode of production of the film, commissioned in serial form by French state TV, but when the executives saw the 8-episode, 743 minutes of the finished product, they rejected it. Rivette edited a 255 minute version of the film, Out 1 :Spectre, which had a modest commercial run. The original version, Out 1 : Noli me tangere became almost invisible, apart from a screening in Le Havre in 1971. Rivette used theatre rehearsals as a structuring device, as in his breakthrough film Paris nous appartient ( 1961)-as much a paranoid portrait of Paris in its time as Out1 had been 10 years later.But he became embarrassed by conventional scripting and made the more free form,unscripted L’amour fou, this opened up his work to improvisation and greater length,with a bare bones scenario.Rivette shot Out 1 after the collapse of the social uprising of May 1968,when a series of strikes by Parisian student unions resulted in a full blown confrontation with the military. The radical hope to change a conservative society ended meekly with De Gaulle’s party consolidating power. Out 1 taps into this post-’68 amalgam of malaise, disillusionment and distrust in grand social movements.

Paris is turned into disconnected individual groups hermetically sealed off from each other.
