Enticing Official US Poster for 'Holy Motors' Debuts - See This Film!
Are you seated and ready? Gather round ye children and take a look at the first US poster for Leos Carax's critically acclaimed, beloved, mind-trip Holy Motors. This film, featuring French actor Denis Lavant playing various characters in a number of odd, eclectic vignettes set around Paris, initially premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. I caught it there and while I didn't review it at the time, I quite enjoyed it but it has grown more over time, because of how it gets into the idea of "performances" in every day life. HitFix has debuted the official US poster for the film, and it shows one of the sexy characters, but not Lavant himself. I still like the rather enticing and bold imagery, as this truly needs as much exposure as it can get. See below!
Holy Motors follows an individual named Monsieur Oscar (Denis Lavant), a mysterious person who travels around playing different characters. "He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man… But where is his true home, his family, his rest?" This is the first film from French director Leos Carax since 1999; his past work includes Boy Meets Girl, Bad Blood (Mauvais sang), The Lovers on the Bridge and Pola X. Some may recognize Denis Lavant from Carax's segment of the triptych Tokyo. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, Holy Motors was picked up by Indomina Releasing, who will release this limited on October 17th. It's now playing at the New York Film Festival. See this as soon as you can!
