Jane B. par Agnès V.

Director: Agnès Varda
Year Released: 1988
Rating: 1.5

Just before her 40th birthday, actress/singer Jane Birkin teams up with director Agnès to go over her life, from her growing up in England to her love life (Serge!) to her insecurities (she's not fond of looking into the camera).  It's never a good sign when the director and actress sit down two thirds of the way through to talk about 'losing the audience' - too often they act like art school gals taking photos of themselves wearing billowy dresses and gliding through cemeteries - and the fictitious skits (Ms. Birkin plays Stan Laurel, Calamity Jane, Tarzan's Jane, Joan of Arc, etc.) don't exactly reveal much about her.  Her preferences/eccentricities, on the other hand, are more intriguing: her interest in taxidermy, her fascination with scars and her admiration of bouncy boobs (can't say I blame ya, JB).
