Holy Motors

Holy Motors ★★★★

Oscar literally lived nine lives on a single day when I can barely manage one. In all seriousness, Holy Motors offers a enthralling yet idiosyncratic viewpoint when it comes to what an experimental film is. It captivated me like no other film does with its bizarre visuals and storyline. The nine personas contain little to no connection whatsoever and the almost-two-hour-long film lacks a concrete narrative that a typical audience would look for. But for me, this film is best described by a quote from Richard Flanagan, “I love words because you can only live one life, but in a novel [or in this case, a film], you can live a thousand: you contain multitudes.”
