Holy Motors: A Sumptuous Cinematic Feast

Holy Motors, a French surrealist wonder by Leos Carax, is currently playing at indie theaters possibly near you. I’ve seen it twice and am planning on several more viewings before year’s end. It’s the type of movie with gorgeous visuals, rich emotion, and pure mystery that lingers in your mind and invites you to revisit it time and time again. I recently wrote about why Holy Motors is an award-worthy film at AwardsDaily.com– please check it out. It’s a movie that immerses us in our own insecurities while celebrating our individualities. It’s not your usual commercial film with an easily digestible narrative or characters we immediately recognize… but the emotions, the highs and lows, are wonderful, and the entr’acte is my favorite sequence to date of 2012. Please see this movie, and if you need further convincing, please read the piece I’ve linked above. To quote Oscar, “Trois! Douze! Merde!”
