La Belle Noiseuse ★★★★½

Just a stunning film....Rivette on absolute top form, those 4 hours just fly by. It's impossible to articulate exactly what makes it so effective, but it's a beautiful, mysterious, totally absorbing work of art, and made me wish I could paint. Definitely a memorable experience, and exactly as long as it needs to be. (Also, I hate it when Letterboxd suddenly translates a title out of nowhere....it's just called La Belle Noiseuse, for fuck's sake).
