To hell with all the conceptual embodiment of the film,beginning with the obscure first sequence one the man in the movies. I just like the force, madness, agonic sexuality, seductive ugliness of Lavant,the handy elegance of Scob. The sole sequence of the cemetery with la bete klauskinskian Lavant and la belle Eva Mendes,deserves my 3 star rating

It is difficult to describe to someone what actually happens in this film. At times it reaches sublime heights, it has off-the-wall moments and it is sometimes ridiculous (talking limousines) but it is always unpredictable.
It is undoubtedly an incredibly ambitious and admirable piece of filmmaking, full of homages and references to notable classics. Above all, this film is intensely self-... read more

A good movie

Since I had heard some rather interesting things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, as I expected, it was a pretty tough watch. Indeed, after watching virtually everything directed by David Lynch, I think I had my share of weird experimental mind-f*cks so I definitely had a hard time to connect with this picture. Still, there is no denying that there was still somet... read more

Description: From dawn to dusk, a few hours in the life of Monsieur Oscar, a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man... He seems to be playing roles, plunging headlong into each part - but where are the cameras? Monsieur Oscar is alone, accompanied only by Céline, the slender blonde woman behind the wheel of the vast engine that transports him through and around Paris. He’s like a conscientious assassin moving from hit to hit. In pursuit of the beautiful gesture, the mysterious driving force, the women and the ghosts of past lives. But ... (more)

" Date: 11/19/2019 Viewed: Tubi TV First viewing Note: I remember when this movie came out in 2012, but I never had the chance to see it. Seven years later, I finally saw the movie and I really enjoy it. This movie is a very fun surreal and creative movie from start to finished. I love how this movie is intriguing because it has a non-linear story. The movie's themes on what does it mean to be an actor is also very clever as well. Not to mention, this movie is almost 2 hours long and not a si"

Film Journal 2019 (225 movies items)

"The gig economy doesn't seem *that* bad! Within the deepest core Holy Motors is a pretty straightforward story of the actor's struggle. The form and structure elevates it though, as each of the performances that create the whole of the film are full of nuance and reflection on the profession and the life of someone who has sacrificed themselves therein. Seeing your youth while playing a dying elderly man, the constant false promises of hope, repeating a fate you know will eventually befall you."
