Mysterious ways of Jacques Rivette

I have not yet seen any movies by Rivette, but I just read a list of his movies & some of them sound very interesting, need to check them out. Rivette is credited as director on 31 movies, with their dates of release ranging from 1949 to 2007, at this IMDB page.

This International Herald Tribune article from February of this year was, for me, a good introduction to the filmmaker. Here is the first paragraph from the article:

"Jacques Rivette's movies, like the legendary 12- hour "Out 1" (1971), have heroes who seem to belong to secret societies, characters as enigmatic as their quests: they skate out of control and bump each other in play, or treachery."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
