Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [A] crazy-beautiful reverie about movies, love, the love of movies, and the inevitability of human melancholy by the perpetually mysterious French filmmaker Leos Carax.
Fresh: It's an exhilarating trip of movie madness and sadness.
Fresh: In "Holy Motors" Carax insists on our other selves. His daylong ride is a wary celebration, a joyful dirge that's served up in concentrated form by a roving band of accordion players. It's all in a day's work.
Fresh: Lavant is splendid in the film, and he's essentially the entire film - and yet, "Holy Motors" is somewhat more than a contraption built for a fearless performer.
watching this movie was the most dreadful, worthless, experience of my life
Denis Lavant delivers the WIDEST range of acting in this movie. How isn't he credited on iTunes ? Highly recommend .
