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.
[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.
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.
