Try this - it appears to be an update of the older “complete” French set to include her later works. I’m not a Varda-phile but this seems like it would be a no-brainer release for Criterion: Varda is still very hot right now AND the zeitgeist is looking for female directors to celebrate AND all of her work can probably be collected ala Tati via existing deals with those labels who’ve released the straggling outlier titles

A ha - yes, that's not the same branding but comparable in career-spanning scope - thanks!

Who owns the rights to 'Kung Fu Master' in NA? I know that it's not Janus since it wasn't on the lost of titles announced for the retrospective.

Cinelicious Pics (now Arbelos) put out a Blu-Ray a while ago, but it's OOP. Wouldn't be surprised if they still had the rights, though.

In the very least, any Criterion box is likely to contain these: https://www.filmlinc.org/daily/agnes-va ... ln-center/

Just bought the last copy of this on Amazon.ca. It does says more are on the way so there might be hope. Also found out Gangs of Wasseypur is out of print. Wasn't aware Arbelos let their releases go OOP but good to know.

A reissue / upgrade of the big box would be most welcome if only for the inclusion of her last couple of films and subtitles for Nausicaa and Quelques veuves de Noirmoutier. I could manage the latter (I think it had French subs because of the regional dialect), but the former was way beyond me.

If a new box brings me even a quarter of the joy the old one has brought me it will be money well spent.

You'll have to pry my "make a funny Agnes Varda face with a tiny chain" novelty from my cold, dead hands.

Actually I'm the opposite (in so far as it's the opposite), in that I found English subs for Nausicaa but non for Noirmoutier
