This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in this book. The book reveals the extent of Jacques Rivette's engagement with the ethics of cinema's aesthetic and the demands he made of the films he saw and, later, of himself as filmmaker. His career has also been characterised by a more general intellectual curiosity which led him to seek out Roland Barthes, Claude Lévi-Strauss and Pierre Boulez to interview them for Cahiers, and to cultivate a particular interest in experiments going forward in other artistic fields, especially theatre and music. In Rivette's fifty years of filmmaking career, he has developed and pursued an extremely individual trajectory which has made his output and his position in French cinema unique. Rivette's system of storytelling depends explicitly on evoking curiosity in others.
