Realized there was a Varda feature that I missed, and I had to check it out.
There’s some really interesting stuff here. This is perhaps Varda’s most overtly political movie, and I appreciated that aspect of it a lot. It’s a very important movie, and there are very powerful scenes in here.
This movie unfortunately feels like a bunch of different movies mashed together, and while they all seem like they would be good individually, put together, it turns into an absolute mess. This is probably Varda’s least focused movie, and it makes it very difficult to get too invested.
So yeah, it’s good, but not really great. Worth a watch to complete Varda’s filmography but otherwise not particularly notable.
