A salute to Jacques Rivette, craftsman of the French New Wave
We'll leave the eulogizing to Glenn Kenny at Flavorwire, who wrote an excellent tribute to a man who never labeled himself a director and preferred a credit for mise en scène. Give it a read.
Rivette's films are often unusually difficult to find in the United States, but luckily, we have a few available to watch in the library.
