#9: Holy Motors
Leos Carax's new film supposedly contains references to his past work and art house masterpieces from years past; I missed all of them. Instead I was completely enthralled by the lead performance by Denis Levant, playing a man with the highly unusual job of riding around Paris in a limousine, putting on various disguises, and stepping into possibly scripted dramas about everything from a father picking up his adolescent daughter from a party to a troll-like man kidnapping an American fashion model. Holy Motors is bizarre and enigmatic, but has a welcoming and exuberant spirit that allows even Carax neophytes like me in on the mystery.

Best Moment: The accordion intermission break. "Three! Twelve! Merde!"
