Conclusion: There are some that will inevitably be turned off by the apparent density and perplexing nature of 'Holy Motors' – but, as with most seemingly impenetrable films that are done well, e.g., with style and creativity, and a clear sense of thematic purpose, it won't take long for those willing to give it a shot to develop incredibly strong feelings about it.
Summary: "Holy Motors" is a unique cinematic experience that consistently delivers steady revelations as the film progresses. It is meticulously constructed to create a specific set of circumstances within a somewhat traditional plot.
Summary: Have you ever had a dream which when upon waking and thinking about it obviously made no (or at least little) sense whatsoever, and yet while you were actually dreaming it seemed to be the absolute height of logic and rationality? For those of you who haven't had this experience, there's a way to recreate it: simply watch Holy Motors , one of the oddest, most quasi-hallucinatory films in recent memory.
Summary: Wow. This was awesome, leaving me in a strange state as I left the theatre, partly because Holy Motors evoked a number of different moods and memories as it wove its way through different film genres, and partly because its dream-world left my mind racing. More While it definitely seems more about the journey than the destination, where the film ends up is in a place of delightful absurdity.
Excerpt: ”Är nostalgi den post-celluloida erans officiella hashtag?” twittrade en kollega nyligen när ännu en ny film flörtade med stumfilmsestetik. Och, visst, nostalgin är tydlig trend i ett medium som idag återföds från kemiskt till digitalt och famlar efter sin identitet. ”Holy motors”, den franske regissörens Leos Carax första långfilm på ett decennium, ligger i samma flöde.
