Holy Motors (2012)

Leos Carax directs Denis Lavant, Édith Scob and Kylie Minogue in this French arthouse puzzler where a man changes persona in his stretched limousine as he journeys around Paris acting out strange anti-social scenes.

No fucking idea. Indulgent, impactful, strange, pretentious, shocking and memorable. Never has the phrase just try and enjoy the ride been more appropriate for a movie.

  1. Totally agree! This abuses the privilege of arthouse pretentiousness. I actually turned the film off. I realise that makes me the one at fault, but how the hell did they raise a budget for this film!
