Jacques Rivette 1928-2016

Celine and Julie Go Boating posterJacques Rivette

Adieu to M. Rivette, one of the great if lesser known French auteurs, best known for Celine and Julie Go Boating, the celebrated three hour epic of female friendship, magic and Feuilladesque cinematic sleight of hand. His films were little seen, some were never released, and the last, Love on the Ground, with Jane Birkin and Geraldine Chaplin, only saw the light of day in 1984. Hopefully someone will have the imagination to release his TV epic, Out I. RIP.
