Mad Romance: The Films of Leos Carax – HOLY MOTORS

Holy_Motors

“This wild, mythic enigma chronicles a day and a night in the life of the chameleon-like Mr. Oscar (Denis Lavant), a kind of avatar in a white stretch limousine who, in the course of his multiple missions, is transformed as a twisted dwarf, an elderly crone, a knife fighter, a hitman, a dying uncle, a forlorn lover, and more. Entrancing beauty and challenging ugliness, mystery, humor, and dread blend in the haunting and haunted streets of Paris, where Mr. Oscar enacts cryptic scenarios, seemingly at the behest of a higher power.”—Gene Siskel Film Center. “A movie about filmmaking and the ecstasy of creation…. It’s cinema reloaded.”—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. Voted Best Film of 2012 in the Film Comment Critics’ Poll and the Indiewire Critics’ Poll. (115 mins.)

HOLY MOTORS screens Saturday, May 31 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Tickets are available online or at the door.
