R.I.P. Jacques Rivette

I think we live in a world that happens to be incomprehensible. And you have to try to see that the questions this incomprehensible world poses are [unanswerable]. We know in advance that there are no answers to be expected from anyone, not even from science, whose only purpose is to educate people — when the scientists get it right, that is. So we’re just waiting to fade away. We all are. Fade to black. Or crossfade, for those who believe in an afterlife. Some kind of fade, anyway.

  1. RIP and everything, but I can’t help thinking about how many centuries of striving and achievement it took to build a society that could afford to support cheap nihilism like this.

    I’ve always loved Rivette for being one of the few cultural figures who stood up for Showgirls.
