The films in The Jacques Rivette Collection have been given satisfying transfers and some eye-opening supplements.
Out 1 is largely a film of conversation, as its prolonged rehearsal vignettes regularly give way to even lengthier scenes of verbal self-analysis.
It might be a misguided paean to cinematic love, but Criterion’s Blu-ray is positively magical, with a blistering array of divisive supplements.
The greatest asset of Twilight Time’s Blu-ray is the best-to-date home-video presentation of Isabelle Adjani’s transfixing performance.
François Truffaut posits theatricality as wartime solidarity and resistance in his late-career hit The Last Metro.
Criterion’s very handsome transfer does wonders for the film’s gentle, practically caressing lighting and deep reds and browns.
Jacques Rivette’s Le Pont du Nord remains a stimulating document of a city in flux.
Ostensibly an adaptation of the oft-filmed Wuthering Heights, Hurlevent feels more like a schematic indication of Emily Brontë’s famed novel, though that should not be taken as a criticism.
