Varda by Agnès
An unpredictable documentary from a fascinating storyteller, Agnès Varda’s last film sheds light on her experience as a director, bringing a personal insight to what she calls “cine-writing,” traveling from Rue Daguerre in Paris to Los Angeles and Beijing.


The lecture style and talking-head format might feel a little heavy at times, but it allows the audience to watch a legend of cinema take stock of her life’s work and share some last bits of wisdom. Perhaps most likely to be of interest to cinephiles and film buffs, ‘Varda by Agnès’ is an ultra-accessible piece of work which, on viewing, feels like listening to a wise and beloved grandmother speak for nearly two hours. - Jake Watt Read Jake's full article...
