Holy Motors

Holy Motors

Directed by Leos Carax

Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine “appointments,” transforming into new characters or incarnations at each stop. Melding monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, anime, Léos Carax’s mirthful, mind-bending masterwork is a ravishing fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again.

Enthralling and beautiful. Holy Motors encompasses everything I fell in love with film as an art form. The acting, sparse and poignant, delivers a hopelessness like shards of glass to the soul. Brilliant.

A totally bizarre and thoroughly entertaining movie. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but its performances and imagery create a world that is oddly beautiful.

HolyMotors is when contemporary cinema has an extra element to offer besides storytelling. In the essence of desire, the main character is a mix of actor-escort who fulfills his clients desires/ dreams. The film itself is profound as its plots. A masterpiece!
