Feature Friday: “Vagabond” (1985)

My favorite film of the 1980s? It’s probably either this or Blade Runner, depending on which one I’ve seen last.

Or My Neighbor Totoro, or Bad Timing. Hm. Well, that’s the company Vagabond keeps.

If I ever meet Agnès Varda (and here’s hoping), I’m going to ask her why she dedicated this movie to Nathalie Sarraute.

(For more of my thoughts on this great film, see this post. See also this short and well-made Film Art video essay on Varda’s use of elliptical editing.)
