I know I am supposed to like Agnes Varda, but The Gleaners and I made me lose all patience. I said "ENOUGH!" outloud, to myself, on the train, as I ejected the DVD! If she's so radical, why is she such a pollyanna?! She asks the dumpster diving gypsies why they drink so much beer?! She is suprised that so much waste is in the world? She includes long scenes of the lens cap swaying front of the lens out of a sense of mirth?! UP WITH RECYCLING SAYS THE PRECIOUS AND PRECOCIOUS FRENCHWOMAN! ENOUGH SAYS ME!
