Cannes: Agnes Varda to Receive Honorary Palme d’Or

9 May 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Part of a wave of welcome recognition, influential filmmaker Agnes Varda will receive an honorary Palme d’Or at this year’s 68th Cannes Festival. She follows in the footsteps of just Woody Allen (2002), Clint Eastwood (2009) and Bernardo Bertolucci (2011).

The award goes to renowned directors whose works have achieved global impact but who have never won the Cannes Festival’s Palme d’Or, the festival explained, announcing the honor Saturday. Varda will receive the plaudit at the Cannes Festival’s closing ceremony on May 24.

The honorary Palme d’Or follows a tribute at 2014’s Locarno Festival and a lifetime achievement award from the European Film Academy, presented last December at the 27th European Film Awards.

It marks recognition for a figure whose career is often associated with the French Nouvelle Vague but begun a half-decade before with 1954’s “La Pointe Courte,” her first feature film, which starred Philippe Noiret and was edited by Alain Resnais. »

New on Video: ‘Skidoo’

Skidoo

Written by Doran William Cannon

Directed by Otto Preminger

USA, 1968

Of the nearly 70 films I’ve written about in this column, I would whole-heartedly recommend each without reservation, to not only watch, but to spend good money on. With 1968′s Skidoo, out now on a new Olive Films Blu-ray, I’m breaking that tradition. I wouldn’t suggest anyone purchase this film, though everyone should see it. This is a most unusual, absolutely indefinable, wholly unique motion picture.

I initially viewed Skidoo on the sole basis of its starring Alexandra Hay, who I’ve been smitten with since first seeing her in Jacques Demy’s Model Shop, released the following year. On this point, Skidoo succeeds. Hay is a delightful beauty, charming in a way that is very much of the era. Admittedly unfamiliar with her biography, I can’t imagine why she didn’t have more of a career. »
