Holy Motors

Since it got wildly favourable reviews almost all round, I was disappointed that I didn’t find the film more engaging, even with the gracious participation of Edith Scob and Kylie. Perhaps I just wasn’t receptive on the night to its episodic structure. I did rather like this “entr’acte”, with oddly aggressive accordion playing:

I did not associate that scene with the original, and probably didn't get a lot of the references in the film - I hadn't recognised Edith Scob from 'Eyes Without a Face' fifty years earlier (although she was great in both films). The film didn't always work for me, although it was still probably one of the more interesting of last year, even if I wouldn't go as far as some of its more enthusiastic proponents - possibly qualifies as one of Adam's psychedelic movies?

And you probably didn't have the benefit of Korean subtitles. If you haven't seen it already, try to see Edith Scob in L'heure d'été, which was recommended here by Norman a few years ago.
