Summary As a pioneer of the French New Wave, Jacques Rivette was one of a group of directors who permanently altered the world's perception of cinema by taking the camera out of the studios and into the streets. His films, including "Paris nous appartient", "Out 1: Noli me tangere", "Celine et Julie vont en bateau - Phantom Ladies Over Paris", "La belle noiseuse", "Secret defense", and "Va savoir" are extraordinary combinations of intellectual depth, playfulness, and sensuous beauty. In this study of Rivette, Mary M. Wiles provides a thorough account of the director's career from the burgeoning French New Wave to the present day, focusing onthe theatricality of Rivette's films and his explorations of the relationship between cinema and fine arts such as painting, literature, music, and dance.
Subject Rivette, Jacques, 1928-2016 -- Criticism and interpretation.
