The TFH Grab Bag! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing Leos Carax’s neon mystery tour through Paris, “Holy Motors,” with a shape-shifting Denis Lavant at its center.
Dream logic rules the day in Leos Carax’ multi-layered film
in which a mysterious man is shepherded about Paris in a stretch limo
where he assumes a different disguise at each stop. Released to enormous
critical acclaim in 2012, the film stars Lavant with legendary french
actors Edith Scob (Eyes Without a Face) as the limo driver and Michel Piccoli
(La Grande Bouffe) as her occasional consort.
