In the last issue of Senses of Cinema, Daniel Fairfax reviewed Douglas Morrey and Alison Smith's Jacques Rivette, and now, for Issue 61, Mary Wiles has allowed the editors to choose a chapter from her forthcoming Jacques Rivette. Rolando Caputo's decided to go with the one on L'amour fou (1969) for a number of reasons, but primarily because "the film seems the point of historical conjunction between the end of one wave and the coming of a second wave of filmmakers that washed up in its undertow. At a stretch, one can see the shadow of this film on the cinema of Jean Eustache, Maurice Pialat, Philippe Garrel and others. L'amour fou is a great and wondrous film." And he's running Rivette's 1950 essay "We Are Not Innocent Anymore" as well.

The theaters might be dominated at present by big, expensive action flicks, but for those after more thought-provoking cinema, it's looking to be an excellent summer for documentaries. Already we've seen the likes of "The Arbor," "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff" and "L'Amour Fou," and even more exciting prospects are coming down the pipe, including "Page One," "Buck," "Project Nim" and "Beats, Rhymes & Life." But one of the most anticipated is one that many of The Playlist team have already checked out: "Tabloid," the excellent latest project from Errol Morris, the man behind classics like "The… »
This weekend at the box office it's a battle between the first big comedy of the summer and the second comic book movie of the summer. Will Bridesmaids be able to attract both men and women? Will Priest be any better than Legion? It seems unlikely that either film will bring down Thor, but hey, you never know. In select theatres, look for the Will Ferrell dramedy Everything Must Go, Sundance hit Hesher starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman, and the underground dancing drama Go For It!. What will you be checking out this weekend? Priest  Bridesmaids  Everything Must Go  (limited) Hesher  (limited) Go For It!  (limited) Skateland  (limited) Cameraman: The Work and Life of Jack Cardiff  (limited) The First Grader  (limited) How to Live Forever  (limited) L'amour fou  (limited) City of Life and Death   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0822847/  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1478338/  http://www.imdb. »
