“Cinema and the adventurers remaining in its audience need the occasional movie that moves, explodes, exasperates, astounds and Holy Motors does that. It is a transporting vehicle.” — TIME Magazine

Only once every few years do film lovers experience a genuinely surrealistic arthouse gift along the lines of what directors like Jodorowsky, Matthew Barney or Gaspar Noe put out into the world — and Leos Carax’s Holy Motors is your next gift: one of the most ambitious feature films of the last decade. Joyous, hilarious, and positively otherworldly are but a few ways to describe its liquid “exquisite corpse” narrative; nothing can properly prepare you for the experience of Holy Motors, because nothing you have ever seen has moved or felt quite like it. In the performance(s) of a lifetime, regular Carax collaborator Denis Lavant is an amorphous Actor who, over the course of one day, carries out a mystery mission to inhabit a wide variety of chameleonic public roles: a bag lady, an assassin, a freakazoidal sewer dweller, a somber lover and much more. Driven around Paris in a chauffeured limo by the legendary Edith Scob (Eyes Without A Face), Lavant physically commits to each drop-of-a-hat character swap so thoroughly, and engages you so immediately that it’s truly impossible for anyone to predict what comes next, as Carax giddily cranks this cinematic Rubik’s Cube. Essential 21st-century viewing, and the most emotional, triptastic experience of the year.

Mauvais Sang

Leos Carax's hyper-colored 1980s giddiness!
mauvaissang_website
12/2/2012 - 6:30PM

Mauvais Sang is the work of a filmmaker in love with the possibilities of filmmaking, in love with his characters, the actors playing them, their faces and expressions, and Carax puts everything in service of them.” — The Digital Fix

1980s French cinema never achieved a sweeter, higher giddiness than Mauvais Sang, an electric mixture of French New Wave elasticity, the Coen Brothers’ stark staging, the intense melodramatic pyrotechnics of Douglas Sirk, and the hyper-colored flair of old Hollywood musicals. Less concerned with the machinations of his gangster film plot than bouncing the audience along an unending, uncoiling chain of blissful genre “moments”, Carax-as-puppetmaster glides us along the near-future story of a teenage hoodlum tasked with stealing the vaccine for an AIDS-like romantic malady, and afflicted with a deadly attraction to his employer’s young girlfriend. The cast is super-strong (Denis Lavant, Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy, Michel Piccoli), and Carax’s visual vocabulary is even stronger, with an infectious zeal for the filmmaking process itself pouring forth from every single perfectly-framed shot. This is the Carax who is later felt in the even-more impossible heights of Holy Motors, and this is the Carax who rightfully earned his place as one of France’s greatest emerging talents of the Eighties.
Dir. Leos Carax, 1986, 35mm, 116 min.

Boy Meets Girl

An essential page from the book of doomed love!
boymeetsgirl_website
12/1/2012 - 5PM

The definitive document of ‘80s underground French cinema, Boy Meets Girl was the exhilarating and tumultuously romantic debut by Leos Carax, a precocious and passionate 23-year-old cineaste soon to become his homeland’s leading bête noire and monstre sacré. Pairing the laconic, monochrome slapstick of Jim Jarmusch with a larger-than-life stylistic panache, Carax’s experimental melodrama stars Denis Lavant as a compulsive loafer whose post-breakup meanderings through nocturnal Paris draw him into the orbit of depressive beauty Mireille — whom he meets at a surreal house party, among astronauts and actresses, while she hides on the verge of suicide in the bathroom. In sequences both absurdly comic and profoundly romantic, these two unstable outcasts share Alex’s last moments of freedom together on the eve of his Army conscription. Culminating in a cataclysmic, violently poetic grand guignol finale, Boy Meets Girl is an essential page from the book of doomed French love; whether you’re tracing backwards from Desplechin or forwards from Godard, no history of cinematic amour fou is complete without it.

Pola X

polax_website
11/29/2012 - 7:30PM

Radically revamping his entire artistic direction — by putting every technique in his arsenal into a barrel, rolling it down a hill, exploding it into a thousand bits and starting anew with a pulse-pounding sense of dark, urgent purpose — Leos Carax closed out the Nineties (and the first leg of his stormy career) with Pola X, his chaotic, crimson ode to whacked melodrama. Flaunting an incredibly haunting score by Scott Walker, the film finds Guillaume Depardieu (Gerard’s son) as a bored, ultra-rich hit novelist, Catherine Deneuve as his vaguely incestuous hot mom, and Yekaterina Golubyova (star of Bruno Dumont’s Twentynine Palms) as the feral woman who wanders out of the woods and claims to be Depardieu’s half-sister. As Herman Melville’s original source material (the novel “Pierre, Or The Ambiguities”) shocked the 19th-century bourgeoisie, Carax’s unprecedented adaptation deeply unnerved the pre-Millenium French moviegoing public, earning such scathing reviews upon its original release that Carax’s career took over a decade to recover. Seen today, Pola X marks a major paradigm shift in French arthouse cinema, pointing away from Lovers On The Bridge-style tragic romanticism, and instead towards a more savage, visceral, shocking and disturbing extremity later practiced by filmmakers like Bruno Dumont and Gaspar Noé.

Holy Motors (11/27, 10:20pm)

11/27/2012 - 10:20PM

“Cinema and the adventurers remaining in its audience need the occasional movie that moves, explodes, exasperates, astounds and Holy Motors does that. It is a transporting vehicle.” — TIME Magazine

“Nothing makes ‘sense’ in this crazy-beautiful reverie about movies, love, the love of movies, and the inevitability of human melancholy…[a]nd yet everything is exactly as it should be, in one of the grand cinematic eruptions of the year.” — Entertainment Weekly

Only once every few years do film lovers experience a genuinely surrealistic arthouse gift along the lines of what directors like Jodorowsky, Matthew Barney or Gaspar Noe put out into the world — and Leos Carax’s Holy Motors is your next gift: one of the most ambitious feature films of the last decade. Joyous, hilarious, and positively otherworldly are but a few ways to describe its liquid “exquisite corpse” narrative; nothing can properly prepare you for the experience of Holy Motors, because nothing you have ever seen has moved or felt quite like it. In the performance(s) of a lifetime, regular Carax collaborator Denis Lavant is an amorphous Actor who, over the course of one day, carries out a mystery mission to inhabit a wide variety of chameleonic public roles: a bag lady, an assassin, a freakazoidal sewer dweller, a somber lover and much more. Driven around Paris in a chauffeured limo by the legendary Edith Scob (Eyes Without A Face), Lavant physically commits to each drop-of-a-hat character swap so thoroughly, and engages you so immediately that it’s truly impossible for anyone to predict what comes next, as Carax giddily cranks this cinematic Rubik’s Cube. Essential 21st-century viewing, and the most emotional, triptastic experience of the year.
