Mur Murs

Mur Murs ★★★★

i thought i knew what i was in for. i don't know what i was thinking. this is the strangest agnès varda movie i have seen yet, with the extended tai chi sequence, the quick jump cutting and the synthesizers, the part where she lets the Christian guy talk for so long about judgment day, and the flaming performance at the end. a tangential cycle of life, starting with the energetic venice beach, then the silent ghost towns, the bizarre afterlife at the performance, and finally the rebirth with the demonstration of murals' ephemerality. what an amazing poet! awesome/ thank you alex
