Out 1: Part 1.

Jacques Rivette, co-founder of the French New Wave along with Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Éric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol, has always been that group’s most free-spirited and aesthetically radical member. This is very much on display in OUT 1, his fourth feature film and magnum opus, in which a whimsical young man receives anonymous notes that put him on the trail of a mysterious group of people who might or might not be conspirators. Based on an utterly unique concept that includes the absence of a script and nods to Honoré de Balzac and Lewis Carroll, OUT 1 has been practically impossible to see for more than forty years. An immensely involving, almost addictive blend of film, literature and theater, OUT 1 has been hailed as the Holy Grail of modern French cinema.
