tanker’s review published on Letterboxd:
Literally the best kind of weird a movie can be. It has you shouting at the screen: "What the fuck is happening?" and "Why? What! WHY?!" until you just accept it and fall into to lunatic embrace. Once you think you have it figured out it slaps you in the face and tells you to fuck off (making you feel quite dumb for even thinking you finally understood what was happening). It rides a very fine line between comedy & drama as well as pretentious & meaningful.
I heard someone describe the film as a "tribute to films." This is also the stance I've come to accept when it comes to Holy Motors. Significant to note: acting in this is fantastic, Denis Lavant deserves a significant amount of recognition for this film.
Bonus: Go watch the film "Tokyo!" if you enjoyed the lovely weirdness of this movie.
