Terrible, terrible day! One of the greatest directors the world has ever known is gone, and dare I say it, she was still in her prime 60 years into her career! :(

Oh no! She seemed invincible, like Betty White.

I was late to the Varda train, but I've generally liked what I've seen, and she's one of the few directors at the moment that I'm genuinely excited to see more of. MUBI's feature on her right now seems unexpectedly timely. Watched Diary of a Pregnant Woman last night, in fact, and today Uncle Yanco is their featured film.

Agnes! :'( (u) Ugh, I'm genuinely so sad - aside from being a great filmmaker and a fcking legendary PIONEER for women in the industry, she was also just so loveable, cheeky, wise, and fun. Even at 89 in Faces Places, she was cooler than I'll ever be.

What a treasure, thank god we still have her wonderful screen presence to enjoy. I wish I could rewatch The Beaches of Agnes right now, but it will have to wait.

She'll continue being an idol and inspiration for many years to come, I'm quite sure of that.

Ah no, that's sad :(

But it's pretty great she was able to continue to the end and indeed her late docs are some of her best work.

RIP Agnès, your films will remain forever in our hearts and minds, for me especially "Les glaneurs et la glaneuse" which is one of the most powerful milestones in my cinephilia.

I am incredibly happy she produced one more work, soon to come, though (French speakers may already have seen it however): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9530198/

Varda by Agnes seems like the perfect swansong to her career, summarizing her journey as a director, and I expect it to be done in her fantastic personal and intimate style.

Apparently it will be aired on the channel "Arte" (available in France and also in Germany I think) tonight (10.30 PM, UTC+1 - "Paris time")

I actually got a little damp-eyed upon hearing this news, and that doesn't happen to me often.

I didn't even know until reading the obits that she finished one last film. Wow. And the features on my watchlist are ranked, and both "Les Creatures" and "Jane B. by Agnes V." are in my top 17.

It was aired on Arte for the first time a few months ago and is available on YouTube in two parts (French only) - not sure if there is any country restriction

I don't like that the first thing I read in a lot of obits is that she was part of the New Wave. I always thought Varda was really off doing her own thing. If nothing else, she struck me as fiercely independent.

Two hours ago I found your message was relevant and true. Now I've just seen "Sans toit ni loi" (Vagabond) and I find it even more relevant and true.

It really depends on what you call the New Wave. A strict definition is just the Cahiers people: Chabrol, Godard, Truffaut, Rohmer and Rivette. But even they all went their own way and did their own thing, there's no homogeneity to the movement even in its narrowest definition. As a wider movement, though, Varda absolutely belongs.

Just bought the April edition of Sight and Sound and even though it isn't even April yet the editorial hasn't aged well. It's a piece comparing Agnes Varda and Pauline Kael that states:

'The first contrast is that Varda is still with us, and more famous than she's ever been, a living brand who's the iconic opposite of the recrecently deceased Karl Lagerfield...' 😕

Tania Mallet (1941-2019) who played Tilly Masterson in Goldfinger

Remarkably, all 25 "main Bond girls" are still alive but quite a few of the other girls have passed away.

Decent coach, extraordinary lineman.

As a lifelong Bengals fan, a name I'm definitely familiar with, even though his coaching tenure was before my time (I was born in 1983). I don't know enough about NFL history to know he was a HOF caliber player, though. :rip:

Sorry never heard of the last one. Former Liverpool defender who scored in the 1977 European cup final, hard man as well, Tommy Smith has died at 74, if we are including sports people.

I would be surprised if she's even in his top 3 most used actresses.

Actually rewatched The Mirror today and had been wondering how different the film would be if had she been cast as the mother as Tarkovsky originally intended. RIP.

Wow, I would have put money on the other 3 ladies on that list all having a higher count than Bibi.

Lindblom being in only 8 doesn't seem right, I thought she had a bigger presence in his filmography, maybe it just feels that way to me because all the ones she was in are among my favourites.
