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

A good if incomplete look at Leos Carax
24 July 2020 | by bastosSee all my reviews

The problem with making a documentary like this on a still active artist is that inevitably it will become incomplete. This is a well made and full of good intentions doc on the work of enigmatic French film director Leos Carax. And even if we didn't need the director himself to talk about his work, some other absences are much more unforgivable (like Juliette Binoche). It feels incomplete.
