2001: Va Savoir. * Auteur factor: 8/10. Jacques Rivette is a beloved French director, if not quite as well-known to festival-trolling NYU sophomores as Godard. * Festival factor: 7/10. Played previously at Cannes, and Mr. Rivette had won two prizes for a different film at Berlin. * Hype: 4/10. Hard to gauge a decade-old film’s hype in retrospect, but this year’s festival also hosted Y Tu Mama También and Mulholland Drive. Overshadowed! * Total: 19/30 NYFF points.
