L. Carax's "HOLY MOTORS" - auteur cinema

  • Dec 12, 2012 · 8:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

From France comes this fantasy-drama film written and directed by Leos Carax. It premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival to great critical acclaim and won the Prix de la Jeunesse.

Join us then for Monsieur Oscar's rollicking, soulful journey by limousine through the streets of Paris as he transforms into multiple characters for a series of mysterious "appointments" melding monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, anime... a mind-bending, ravishing fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again.

...Weird and wonderful, rich and strange – barking mad, in fact. It is wayward, kaleidoscopic, black comic and bizarre; there is in it a batsqueak of genius, dishevelment and derangement; it is captivating and compelling. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

After you've RSVP'd you'll find out about our promo code for the discount tickets and where to purchase them online. Please note this is not mainstream cinema.

    Although the movie was a bit too, shall we say different, for me, it was a wonderful evening overall. I've never been one for fantasy type movies, but I think it is important to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. A few people said that this movie was filled with metaphors, I guess my mind does not work that way. However the movie was definitely entertaining and I will say that when I walked into the theater I was in a pissy mood (due to something that had happened earlier in the evening) and when the movie was over I was so befuddled and confused and mystified that I was no longer in a bad mood, lol! The theater was fabulous and I look forward to seeing more films here. I also enjoyed sitting on Espanola Way for part 2 having a pina colada and enjoying the company of nice people until 1 am. :-)

    If cars could talk, what stories they would tell about each of us?

      You need to attend a part 3 with me in order to get this answer. ;-)

    Enjoyed it. It reminded me of how much acting we do in our lives, the different masks we wear. It laughs out loud at our excesses... too much concern with beauty... ugliness, aging, nudity, and covering-up... too much smoking.. .Too much eating... passion... too much unexpected violence. Eva Mendes was very good in her role as a beautiful model. I interpreted her segment as two wrongs don’t make it right. It is as exploitative to have women all covered up as it is to have women praised only because of their beautiful physic…. At the end the guy goes home to his wife and daughter who are actually primates. Was the film maker intention to tell us that this is what we actually are? We should be simple to figure out, but we are not. In conclusion, this is a movie that lingers on your mind and makes you think about it when you least expect it. Loved the ambiance of this tiny theatre where you feel most welcomed. Hope to return soon.

    Fascinating... all your comments. Just for that I would schedule a bunch of auteur films just to read what you guys have to say! Seriously, I'm agreeing with each one of you; by the way, I read a critic's analysis stating that this film was about the death of cinema as an art form... Of course this is this critic's point of view as there have been others with differing views, but this critic has a point, too.
    Anyway, I'm happy and proud of you guys for being great sports and braving a film like this one, specially those of you who are not into this kind of auteur cinema. Kudos to you!

    It was about passion. He loved so much the art of acting that he was trying to make it his real life and part of his daily routine, in order to bring meaning to his existence.
    This is not my type of movie but it was somehow interesting. I got the point, which somehow is a kind on insanity when someone cross the line of passion.

    Bizarre. My view is he was an Angel of Death.

    Very bold, far-out

    Was engaged in finding meaning all the way home. Very unusual, which is a nice break from the 'usual'.

    OMG this was crazy but my boyfriend loved it!

    Definitely not a film for everyone. It is indeed surreal, dark, weird... Nevertheless, I personally enjoyed it and liked it. It is dense with meaningful layers to the point that each viewer will have different valid interpretations. It is bold, irreverent, artistic, and it breaks away from the widespread cookie-cutter filmmaking... It doesn't have a point, it has several points that say much. And like Art it's not necessarily meant to be liked by everyone, and that's perfectly fine.

    How do I purchase a extra ticket for my guess? Will I have to enter the info twice?

    December 12, 2012

    • Noel M.

      Looks like it.

      December 12, 2012

    • G

      Hi Harrold, yes you might have to do it twice, I know of other members having the same issue. Nevertheless, you may also buy the extra ticket in person, just be there early and don't forget to mention our promo. Cheers.

    The trailer is kick arse; if I may say so in those terms. I'm really sorry I won't be able to make it for this one with you guys. The after-movie discussion is surely to be as entertaining. Have fun guys! <3

    If I may liberally interpret the "come prepared" - before you go, I would highly recommend "weeding" your garden first..... :)

    This is as weird as Ali G. and farther out. It should be quite hoot to attend. I suggest everyone come prepared.
    Keep posting your views
