The Films of French New Wave Icon Jacques Rivette You Can Watch Right Now

François Truffaut once called French New Wave filmmaker Jacques Rivette “the most fanatic of all of our band of fanatics.” Although he never received the spotlight of someone like Jean-Luc Godard, Rivette made headlines just last year after his twelve-hour opus Out 1 played in theaters for the first time, newly restored. The visionary filmmaker passed away earlier this week, leaving behind a legacy that historians and critics are still challenged by, thanks to Rivette’s impossible-to-define approach that blended theater, cinema, and a discourse perhaps more familiar to philosophers and art critics. Here are the Rivette films you can stream right now in honor of the legendary director.
