Holy Motors (2012)

Cannes Film Festival 2012

Award of the Youth
Leos Carax
Palme d'Or
Leos Carax

Indomina Group
Directed by Leos Carax
My rating: BOMB
(Blu-ray, Vivendi)

A man drives around Paris in a white limousine to a series of "appointments" in which he wears elaborate costumes and makeup. He begs for money on the street as an old woman, has simulated sex while wearing a motion capture outfit on a movie stage, kidnaps a model on a photo shoot and other absurd, unrelated episodes. There is a musical interlude featuring accordions. Appalling waste of talent in what must be the ultimate pretentious art film.
