‘Holy Motors’: Leos Carax’s head trip
“Holy Motors,” Leos Carax’s first feature film in 13 years, is a surreal, exuberant head trip that’s hard to describe and even harder to dissect. It bursts with demented yet mesmerizing images. During a recent interview the day after “Holy Motors” screened at the New York Film Festival, Carax admits that he had doubts about whether the mystifying film, which opens Friday, would connect with audiences. “I thought it would be too strange, too difficult for people,” he says.
