Holy Motors Will Get You Thinking
I do not pretend to be some sort of film expert. I’ve seen most of the “arty classics” and enjoy reading about film. There are a few areas I like more than others. With this proclamation of non-intent I must thoroughly and vigorously recommend seeing Holy Motors if you have the chance.
It is unlike any movie I have ever seen. Bits and pieces of temporal displacement, sure; references to the history of cinema, sure; an amazing performance by Denis Lavant, most def; a complete sense of dislocation and wonder, oh yeah; an ending that left the whole audience looking at each other as the lights came up, that was fun.
My personal reaction to this film is that I have NOT stopped thinking about it. Not necessarily trying to “figure it out”, but just re-running scenes and scenarios in my head. It is a film that warrants mad discussion over much libation. Will someone I know PLEASE see this movie so we can commence with said discussion!
