Holy Motors Film Screening


HOLY MOTORS is the fifth film by French filmmaker Leos Carax, his first in thirteen years (the latest since 1999's POLA X) and it is unlike anything you have seen, heard, or dreamed. The film is difficult to explain without giving away its many pleasures. In many regards, the best way to experience HOLY MOTORS is to buy your ticket, take your seat, and experience it - to take our word for it, to take the word of the critics who awarded it the Critics' Prize at Fantastic Fest 2012, to let yourself experience something altogether cinematically different. The mistake many critics make is to review HOLY MOTORS in linear, descriptive terms. HOLY MOTORS is more like a series of unpredictable impressions, a maze in which the mind of both filmmaker and viewer wanders, not knowing where they will wind up next. It is not very often that a movie comes along that is as captivating, imaginative, and so literally breathtaking as HOLY MOTORS.
