Out 1 is about lives sliding up against one another and slipping off in myriad directions, until what once seemed real becomes something resembling myth.

Out 1 is Rivette redux. His engagement with actors is there on the screen, creating energy even in simple conversational scenes, and they are co-conspirators in his hide-and-seek stories...

If there's any truth to the old chestnut that great works of art teach you how to experience them, few films exemplify it quite so fully as Jacques Rivette's Out 1.

A cineaste's wet dream. All 13 hours of it.

The contingent, the unforeseeable and uncontrollable, is a privileged element in much 20th-century experimental art-in music and painting as much as in film and literature-and Out 1 honors it to the maximum.

It requires a theater, and it requires opting in -- though that, as I said before, is the hard part. After that, all that's left is to surrender to a movie that's like a new country ready to be explored.

If the recent rise and fall of Occupy Wall Street is any indication, Rivette's playful yet deeply serious lament for the faded hopes of a whole generation will continue to be relevant as long as people dare to dream about reshaping the world.

Uniquely ambitious, Rivette's film (technically a serial) spends nearly 13 hours stitching paranoia, loneliness, comedy, and mystical symbolism into a crazy quilt big enough to cover a generation.

Time and Narrative are pushed to the extreme in Jacques Rivette's Out 1: Noli me tangere, a film that operates simultaneously as stealth vérité and raw psychodrama.

[G]alling acting exercises of its era performed by double, warring troupes, impacted jealousy, labyrinthine intrigues, counterculture quiddities, sudden gunfire and remarkable experiments with time and duration that are almost unaccountably moving.

It wants to show the long, slow, painful, sad dissolution of plans, ambitions, even ideals.

Out 1 is largely a film of conversation, as its prolonged rehearsal vignettes regularly give way to even lengthier scenes of verbal self-analysis.

Mr. Rivette's movie delivers an experience that is deeply satisfying precisely because it's kind of exhausting.

Out 1's length is a strategy against progression, drama, or detail - there are no brilliant, memorable moments, just a brainwashing, an accretion of time that fashions its own rules for watching.

Rivette's transformative "pure hazard," couched in the bare image that holds a thousand enigmas

While the actors are responsible for much of the creativity, these are the director's most obsessive works: every shot and scene is set up more as a question than an answer, hinging on the adventure and mystery of not knowing what will happen next.

Rivette's last shot is an extraordinary throwaway that provoked spontaneous applause for being at once completely ordinary, totally unexpected, and positively diabolical in shifting the meaning of the entire previous 12 1/2 hours.

Out 1 has been accurately described as a "film-fleuve," and though its current may be slow, its volume is massive; one could easily follow any one of its many tributaries to vast thematic territory.

A monumental if cheeky culmination of the French New Wave.

What one can say after the experience is that there is nothing else quite like it in all of cinema.
