Agnès from May ’10 to May ’11

Y’all ought to know that Mubi has rolled out an online retrospective devoted to the work of one of the most singular artists in the history of cinema, the one and only Agnès Varda. The films that comprise “Le cinéma d’Agnès Varda” will be available for streaming for a year; among these are films that most are likely at least somewhat familiar with (“Cléo from 5 to 7,” “Vagabond”) and films that I’ve never even come close to being able to see (“Lions Love,” “Jacquot de Nantes,” “Daguerréotypes,” all the various shorts). The features cost $3 to watch and the shorts $1. For a comprehensive glimpse at the career of one of the most remarkable artists ever to work in the medium, that’s chump change. (For a more concise overview of Varda’s career, you need only to watch her tremendous “Les plages d’Agnès,” which I’m overdue to revisit myself.)
