Holy Motors
Leos Carax
Denis Lavant, Edith Scob, Eva Mendes

“This gorgeous, goofy, deliberately baffling head trip from French bad boy Leos Carax—think The Matrix,—as remade by David Lynch—is the year’s ultimate critic’s darling. But don’t let that deter you; I promise it’s not boring! There’s no point trying to decode the ultimate whys and wherefores of Holy Motors, in which a man named only Monsieur Oscar (Denis Lavant) travels through multiple identities, multiple realities and many different genres of film, from science fiction to motion capture animation to action flick to romantic musical to family melodrama. You have to enjoy the ride rather than the destination, which isn’t too tough when the ride involves Eva Mendes being abducted by a subterranean, flower-eating troll, Kylie Minogue in a ’60s air-hostess outfit, animated lizard sex and talking cars.” (Andrew O'Hehir, salon.com)
