As it turns out, two films by the great Agnès Varda are playing around town in the next four days. At 11 PM tonight, the Logan Theatre screens her second feature, Cleo From 5 to 7 (1961); and on Sunday at 7 PM, Doc Films will present her 2000 documentary The Gleaners and I as the conclusion of their Varda/Chris Marker series. Along with Vagabond (1985), these films are her best known, and either would make for a fine introduction to her work. I can only hope that someone organizes another Varda retrospective that delves into the rich and strange depths of her career, namely her uncommonly gentle depictions of adultery and pedophilia (Le Bonheur and Kung Fu Master! respectively) and her many documentary shorts. The latter may be her most personal films—Varda entered into cinema by way of photojournalism (she claims to have had little knowledge of movies before she started making her own), and these movies exemplify the focus and spirit of discovery that distinguish her work on the whole.
