BEST FILM OF THE YEAR!! — Cahiers Du Cinema

If you’re a real cinema lover, THIS is the movie for you: “It’s a gift for moviegoers to have this much freedom, and exhilarating. In “Holy Motors” you never know where Mr. Carax will take you and you never know what, exactly, you’re to do once you’re there. Sometimes you may be amazed or delighted; other times, you may feel restless or uninterested. No matter: there’s always another new vision coming up. If that sounds confusing, it isn’t. …It mostly, wonderfully, feels unlike anything else: it’s cinema reloaded.”―Manohla Dargis, N.Y. Times. “Holy Motors swept me up in its surreal landscape of film genres by the sheer force of Carax’s devotion to cinema. The great Denis Lavant, a Carax muse and an actor of shimmering physical grace, takes on a dozen roles, male and female. As Monsieur Oscar, Lavant begins his work in Paris by climbing into a white stretch limo chauffeured by loyal Celine (a mesmerizing Edith Scob). Each stop will require Oscar, with the help of wardrobe and makeup in the back seat, to transform himself into a variety of characters—a tycoon, a gypsy beggar, a ninja warrior. You get the picture. Even if you don’t, you’ll be transported”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Unrated.  In French with English subtitles. 115 Min.
