"[A]nother of Rivette's intricate meditations on performance, theatre, cinema and artifice."
Director Jacques Rivette may be less well-known to mainstream audiences than his contemporaries Truffaut and Godard, but he is just about as influential and every bit as experimental as any of his French New Wave brethren. His 1988 film, GANG OF FOUR, which took top prize at the Berlin International Film Festival that year, mixes elements of drama and mystery. A quartet of film students studying under famous film critic Constance Dumas move into a small house together. When one of them is brutally attacked and then rescued by a mysterious figure, she comes to realize that this stranger has some secret involvement with her three increasingly menacing housemates.
