  1. fuogofugato's rating of the film Faces Places

    I hope she keeps on making films if that makes her happy, but this is just not very interesting contentwise and is rather poor on the technical level - the post-synchronization is particularly off. And is it really surprising that Godard didn't want to show up for this?

  2. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Faces Places

    Despite being a seemingly surface level documentary about public art, it manages to penetrate into the deeper level of minds whose paths they cross as they journey through France with their photo pasting project. Immensely enjoyable and as often sweet as it is sad.

  3. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Faces Places

    Socially conscious if slightly repetitive in its structure, the good-natured “Faces Places” reserves a touching moment to be presented at the end. (3.5 stars)

  4. José Neves's rating of the film Faces Places

    Bad editing, terrible utilization of a terrible music. Varda continues to capitalize on the spectator's willingness and tenderness, but that Jr is someone very unnerving in his pose as a popular social space artist. And his narcissism overcomes any possible tenderness. Godard stays out of this team play, hélàs pour nous.

  5. ig_____or's rating of the film Faces Places

    Charming and effortless beyond words. What a match made in heaven! As if Varda's and JR interactions weren't cute enough... they had to throw kittens and baby goats into the mix as well! Adorable.

  6. Daniel Roque's rating of the film Faces Places

    The best artsy duo since Frida Kahlo and her unibrow. F.U. Godard!

  7. El Biffo's rating of the film Faces Places

    In a way this is sort of a sequel to Mur Murs. But more than that, it's a Buddy Film. Varda's body of work is formidable, very impressive, but no one film is really a masterpiece. She herself is the masterpiece, adorable, lovable, unassuming and continuing to make great films even after her announced "retirement".

    The flow of this narrative!, man ..so smooth! , feels easy/lighted to hang around, my first and not last for Agnes varda.

  10. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Faces Places

  15. Louis Léonard's rating of the film Faces Places

    C’est beau, c’est gentil... mais après 30 minutes on s’ennuie.

  16. Kamran's rating of the film Faces Places

  17. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Faces Places

    With such joy and bonhomie, one can't help but feel like they're watching educational children's television. But really good educational children's television!

  18. fearraigh's rating of the film Faces Places

    There's more than air of Raymond Depardon's travelogues about this trans-generational collaboration but it is also strongly anchored in the work of both Varda and JR. Brimming with wit and invention and it has a wonderfully touching affection for the places and people in it. The scene where Agnès wells up thinking about Jacques Démy is heartbreaking. A splendid film that is one of a kind.

  19. msmichel's rating of the film Faces Places

    Wonderful collaboration between Varda and JR that finds art in everyday life out in the villages in the faces of strangers. Joyfully light hearted at times but with a serious side underlying concerning aging, mortality, creation and legacy. The relationship between the 89 yr old Varda and the 33 yr old JR is quite moving in its own way with each finding a kindred soul or muse to influence their own creations.

  20. BRAND UPON THE BRAIN!'s rating of the film Faces Places

    Bret Easton Ellis said his guilty secret in moviegoing 2017 was walking out of this and tbh i don't blame him haha

  23. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Faces Places

    Pour la plaisir. Et d'autres raisons.

  24. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Faces Places

    Just about anything or anyone, if recorded and publicly displayed, can become art. That's the idea at the core of this heartwarming doc—or should I say, one of many. It's also about age and youth, the relationship between the past and the present, shifting cultures in modern times, and what an asshole Jean-Luc Godard is. It's a testament to Varda's gaze that she's still looking for and finding life all around her.
