    Jacques Rivette Enigmatic French New Wave Director, Dies at 87

  • “Cocteau is someone who has made such a profound impression on me that there’s no doubt he’s influenced every one of my films.”

    “I reject the word ‘script’ entirely-at any rate in the usual sense. I prefer the old usage-usually scenario-which it had in the Commedia dell’Arte, meaning an outline or scheme: it implies a dynamism, a number of ideas and principles from which one can set out to find the best possible approach to filming.”
