Holy Motors Synopsis

Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine "appointments," transforming into new characters or incarnations at each stop. Fetched in the morning by Céline, his trusty chauffeur on this surreal journey, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry. Then he becomes a gypsy crone, begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine. Inside a digital production facility, heʼs a ninja warrior transformed by cuttingedge technology into a reptilian sex god. Next heʼs a gibberish-spewing troglodyte who kidnaps a fashion model from a photo shoot in Père-Lachaise cemetery, ferrying her to his underground lair in the sewers. Then heʼs the melancholy father of a teenage daughter, followed by a shadowy assassin sent to kill his own doppelgänger, a dying old man, and finally a thwarted lover revisiting a flame from his past atop a decaying Right Bank department store next to the Pont-Neuf. Monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, futuristic sex fantasia... Holy Motors is all of these and, then again, none of these. It is a ravishing, shape-shifting, fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again. From celluloid magic to the digital data stream, Monsieur Oscarʼs epic journey of the soul is all of our dreams.

The Top 10 Movies Of 2012: Katey's List The Top 10 Movies Of 2012: Katey's List

2012 was a really, really hard year to sum up in list form, and a top 20 would really be more appropriate to reflect the astonishing variety of blockbusters, out-of-nowhere successes and totally tiny arthouse stuff that grabbed me this year. A lot of these movies snuck up on me, only revealing their brilliance long after I'd written a review or thought I'd forgotten about it. Plenty of those not on this list did the opposite, making an amazing first impression and fading so quickly

“It’s so weird,” the photographer exclaims, looking at abnormal Parisian Oscar (Denis Lavant). That could summarize Carax’s film in a nutshell. Lavant reportedly plays numerous characters in the film. And yet, despite a stream of critical raves and a slew of mesmerizingly gorgeous visuals, the trailer doesn’t say a whole heck of a lot about the finished product.
