This is one on the tongues of cinephiles this fall — Leos Carax‘s long-awaited feature film effort, “Holy Motors.” While this writer had mixed feelings on the meta movie swirl, it seems to be a minority opinion, as most have been taken by the film’s ambition and playfulness. And while New York cinemagoers are already experiencing the film, it won’t be expanding nationally until next week, but until then a couple of new clips should tide you over.
Featuring international pop star Kylie Minogue and lead Denis Lavant, these are two pretty good indicators of both how far-reaching the movie is and the nature of its commentary on movie-making. In the first sequence we see Minogue in a role that allows her to launch into song, while the second scene finds Levant’s shape-shifting character elaborating on the increasingly fleeting nature of movies. And if that’s not enough for you, there’s a new trailer for the movie as well that truly displays the fun and freaky places it goes.
Look for “Holy Motors” near you starting on November 2nd. Watch below.
