I never realized just how quiet Rivette was. Denis' film gives a rare, intimate portrait of one of the greatest and most elusive filmmakers to ever live. And as someone who considers themself a huge fan of Rivette, it only made me love him more!
"Cinéma de notre temps", best episode. Rivette is a mysterious and fascinating figure, shy like a tormented animal, extremely sensitive, that we will miss. And Daney, my God, best film critic of all time. They reach here a rare degree of intimacy. The sequences shown in the film make you want to watch his all body of work!
Fiel a su intención de filmar siempre poderosas energías en pleno acto de manifestación, este capítulo de la serie Cineastas de Nuestro Tiempo pone a Denis frente a dos personas cuya intensidad están todo el tiempo a punto de sobrepasarla: Jacques Rivette y Serge Daney. Aunque no hacen otra cosa más que hablar, lo que dicen (y los silencios antes de que hablen) traen un poco de luz sobre estos dos extraños artistas.
This was perhaps the most astonishing interview I've ever seen; I could not look away. I feel like anyone interested in the cinema of Rivette, or in the cinema, in general, should watch it, because it would do him or her a world of good. It is the most wonderful of films.
mainlined this film straight into my dna the greatest artist/director portrait i've ever seen there's so much to say that i've fallen deafeningly silent shall watch this film every year till i die or whenever stone encroaches on my heart hello what i'm trying to say is yes love
