Holy Motors

Holy Motors ★★★★

Love anything that is both incredibly weird and not challenging whatsoever. This is a wildly entertaining film that I have no real read on outside of its showcasing of artificiality but I am not frustrated by that. In its many vignettes you're sucked in by Denis Lavant's newest visage to a wide range of experiences only to be abruptly woken back up by the bizarre framing device. One minute he might be a monstrous leprechaun licking Eva Mendes's armpit and the next he's a dying old man sharing an intimate goodbye. It does not feel like a film to be solved, just one to give yourself over to and enjoy the ride (no pun intended). Desperately want to watch this again with people who have never seen it before.
