Holy Motors is a 2012 film by Leos Carax. It revolves around a mysterious character, Mr. Oscar, who inhabits different personas throughout the day, acting as if he was being filmed.
As a person who doesn’t really enjoy art cinema, this film boggled my mind. It made me think about this person’s daily life, how he would live doing countless performances a day. Why does he do this? Does he have any personal relationships? What does he gain out of this? Nothing in this film made sense to me.
Nevertheless, I still enjoyed some parts of his performances. I watched the film in a way that all his performances would be consumed individually, which makes the film something like an anthology for me. Because of this, I enjoyed the film a little bit more.
