Storyline

The image of a mysterious, solitary filmmaker - a cineaste maudit - who flees from both the media and the public, is unrelentingly bound to the figure of Leos Carax, in France. Elsewhere, the real focus is on his films and he is considered to be an icon of world cinema. Mr.X dives into the poetic and visionary world of an artist who was already a cult figure from his very first film. Punctuated by interviews and unseen footage, this documentary is most of all a fine-tuned exploration of the poetic and visionary world of Leos Carax, alias "Mr.X". Written by Anonymous

Want to know about Leos Carax and his films? Watch this doc
15 October 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I recently watched this movie at the Mumbai Film Festival, this is a wonderful documentary on French director Leos Carax and the films he's made since the past 30 years. Beginning from how the director started with 'Boy Meets Girl' to his current cinematic poetry 'Holy Motors' its an insightful and filling look at a director who earned a small following after making 'Mauvais Sang (Bad Blood)'. The interviewees also range quite well from critics like Richard Brody and Kent Jones to filmmakers Harmony Korine, Kiyoshi Kurosawa to his collaborators Denis Lavant, Caroline Champetier, Mireille Perrier, giving us material from how Carax worked on set, his inventive and imaginative artistry, and his inspiration to a new generation of filmmakers and movie lovers. So many of them praising him to be a romantic poet of cinema.

If you do find this documentary playing on a TV channel or anywhere in your theaters, (and of course if you're a fan and love Carax's films) go watch it, a lovely trip into the mind of a contemporary underrated director.
