    Film #21 of August 2017 Scavenger Hunt
    Task #23: Watch a film directed by Agnés Varda.

    Poetic in nature and scope, Agnés Varda delivers a very captivating story about a mother and son looking for a new life in Los Angeles where everything for them leads in a dead end. It's a quick hour long film that promises emotions and it delivers. I like Varda's style of directing and letting the camera do it's own thing but making each shot…

    I still can't get over how incredibly sad and personal this movie is to me. While watching it, I found myself having to tell T. about my own experience with my grandmother having dementia at the current time and just how I've experienced it first hand when we visit her. Julianne Moore has a very tough role here having to transform herself mentally from scene to scene as we watch her mind slowly disintegrate.

    ★★★★½

    I mean if you see like two things this November worth your money, this is one of them. This is not another alien arrival film it's so much more. It is one of the more life changing films I have ever seen which surprised me a lot. I don't care you all have to see this. I am blown away by where this went and it left me feeling a sense of hope for our way of life.
