Excerpt: Here's the thing: if you're going to watch Leos Carax's Holy Motors , you really shouldn't read this review. Or any review, for that matter. What you should do is just watch it and trust that it's going to deliver something interesting. I can't guarantee that you'll like it or understand it, but I'm almost positive it will keep you engaged.
Summary: Leos Carax's "Holy Motors" (2012) arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

In French, with imposed English subtitles for the main feature. Region-B "locked".
Excerpt: Jean-Luc Godard famously suggested that the best way to criticize a movie is to make another movie. With Holy Motors, the year’s most electrifying whatsit, Godard’s fellow French filmmaker Leos Carax has taken that idea one delightfully absurd step further. On its surface, this absurdist ode to analog’s death at digital’s hands seems to echo a number of recent essays eager to perform the last rites on cinema, or at least on its status as our dominant dream factory.
