Remembering two recently deceased masters of the craft of cinema

Jacques Rivette

Jacques Rivette was a film director who began his career as a critic at Cahiers du cinéma in the 1950s and was a member of the French New Wave. His career did not achieve immediate success as fellow New Wave directors François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol experienced, but he found his personal style of improvisational filmmaking in the late 1960s and has made highly regarded films in the subsequent decades.
