Faces Places is the most melancholy yet uplifting buddy movie you'll see all year.

It's more than wandering whimsy, with telling comments on decaying industry and Instagram narcissism and a sting in the tail that can only be described as Godardian.

A beguiling and utterly unique piece of work.

"Faces Places" is a lively, fun, stirring tribute to art and its ability to touch people and bring souls together.

There's a chemistry and respect between the two of them, palpable in the film's first moments, that is inspiring. And when the credits roll 89 minutes later, you realize that this is one journey where you never once crankily asked, "Are we there yet?"

... a testament to Varda's own talent and a truly special piece of filmmaking.
October 12, 2017
"Faces Places" turns out to be a road movie in more than a merely literal sense. It is at once a roving journey into environments we rarely see in cinema and an incomplete but invaluable map of Varda's memories.
