Click the link to read my latest review for White Coffee Magazine of Holy Motors, Leos Carax’s return to cinema after a 13 year hiatus.
‘Weird. Weird! it’s so weird’ A photographer utters this line in one of the film’s vignettes. It partially describes what the film may feel like to some, but while it may appear peculiar it’s actually one of the most brilliant and original pieces of cinema to emerge in a very long time.
It is purely a coincidence that Carax’s film should be released and share a similar theme to David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis (2012). The film is reviewed without reference to Cronenberg, despite there being some parallels, because it deserved to be. I had watched Cosmopolis a week before viewing this film and I thought that Carax’s film was far superior.
