Sad to hear about the death of Jacques Rivette, one of the really great filmmakers. Seeing L’Amour Fou and Celine & Julie Go Boating for the first time was, for me, the proverbial life-changing experience. When I was 20, I drove across the Nullabor to see a screening of Out One Spectre at the short-lived Perth Festival that ran in the seventies, worried that I’d never get a chance to see it again. A mere 4 hours running time, the short version of his legendary Out One. Good tribute in the New York Times.
