Critic Reviews for Out 1, Noli Me Tangere
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.
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.
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.
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.
