Of course, Jeanne Dielman’s duration is chump change compared to Jacques Rivette’s Out 1,  an eight-part saga that clocks in at just over 12 hours. Ostensibly  chronicling Jean-Pierre Léaud’s attempt to uncover a mysterious  Balzac-inspired conspiracy, the film is more profoundly an exploration  of our attempts to impose or simply invent meaning to harness the  inchoate chaos of life, a process that can drive people to madness.  (Rivette suffered a nervous breakdown a few years later.) Considering  that Out 1 has only been screened a handful of times in the  nearly four decades since its completion, attempting to see it is a  quest nearly as insane, but very much worth the payoff.
