Often cinema-goers and film fans are treated as imbeciles; plot twists are sign posted, endings deconstructed and characters formulaic. But, every now and then a filmmaker dares to disregard common courtesy, and sense by allowing the audience to make their own mind up. With Holy Motors Leos Carax (The Lovers On The Bridge, Boy Meets Girl) has done exactly that.

Holy Motors is a ‘huh?’ movie: whilst watching you will constantly wonder what is going on and why it is happening, as not once are on-screen actions explained or taken as anything but the norm. The story, of sorts – a limousine picks Oscar (Lavant) up for work where he will spend the day transforming himself into various characters around Paris – doesn’t have a pay-off, »
