In 'Varda by Agnès' - Varda's final film now showing in our cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema - she offers a personal insight into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work to illustrate her unique artistic visions and ideas. Discover this curated retrospective on the veteran filmmaker which showcases her as a vital presence on the landscape of cinema. Varda was making new wave film before the new wave even existed. Her first feature was 'La Pointe Courte' (1955), a drama set in a fishing town that appeared four years before the debut of Truffaut and Godard. 'Cléo from 5 to 7' (1961) captured the carefree atmosphere of early 1960s Paris through its real-time portrait of a pop singer awaiting important news, while the rapturously colourful 'Le Bonheur' (1965) exposes hypocrisy and the fairness of gender relations in family life. If 'Vagabond' (1985) presented a raw account of life for one rootless woman and 'Jacquot de Nantes' (1991) presents a lyrical portrait of Varda's late husband Jacques Demy's early life, her more recent films engage in her own style of personal documentary. Taken together, 'The Gleaners and I' (2000) and 'The Beaches of Agnès' (2008) are joyous celebrations of the world around us and the people that inhabit it.
With his deadpan zombie comedy 'The Dead Don't Die' now showing in our cinemas, we're celebrating the original hipster of indie cinema, Jim Jarmusch. For three decades, maverick auteur Jim Jarmusch has cut his own path across American cinema. It includes his debut 'Permanent Vacation' – all verve and punk attitude. 'Stranger Than Paradise', 'Down By Law' and 'Mystery Train' are classic Jarmusch road movies, replete with his trademark deadpan humour. Then there are the inspired offbeat projects: 'Night on Earth' which features hilarious stories of taxi drivers around the world; the perfect collision of Mafioso, Gangstas and a samurai-inspired hitman in 'Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai'; the neo-Western masterpiece 'Dead Man', and a unique take on the vampire genre with 'Only Lovers Left Alive'. The documentary 'Gimme Danger' finds Jarmusch rhapsodising over his own heroes, the Stooges. And if you want to see an appearance by the great man himself, we've included Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismäki's cult classic 'Leningrad Cowboys Go America'.
