Holy Motors

Holy Motors ★★★★½

It's heavy-handed and a bit uneven, but this movie only gets better with age. Partially because Leos Carax fine-tunes his eclectic nature into what essentially is his thesis statement as a director, and the skilled use of technique in dissonance with the blatant criticism of merging technology and art (and by extension, life). I shrieked out loud when the assistant photographer asked the leprechaun if he knew about Diane Arbus. Stellar performances from Denis Lavant, Edith Scob, and of course Kylie, my nu-disco queen. Goofy, intense, and bewildering.
