Vincent Winther’s review published on Letterboxd:
Out 1: Noli Me Tangere, Jacques Rivette’s magnum opus, and longest film clocking in at just under 13 hours. Out 1: Noli Me Tangere, is an achievement both in filmmaking and acting.
Out 1 blurs the lines between reality and fiction, what’s scripted and what’s improvised, the past and present.
Like the characters in Out 1, the audience will be completely confused, trying to make sense of the story but at the same time mesmerized by the almost meditative quality some scenes have.
Out 1: Noli Me Tangere has no genre, no ordinary or satisfying plot, it simply doesn't conform to standard cinema convention, as if the film is an act of rebellion against what cinema has become.
Making a longer film than Война и мир (1966), Sátántangó (1994), and even Shoah (1985) that’s as coherent as Out 1 is an accomplishment few has achieved.
