I really liked this, I have to say. They managed to keep it really exciting and disturbing right till the very end. Every so often you think you've figured it out, but then something completely unexpected happens. Murder, married to an ape, talking cars. Doesn't make any sense? Well it's hard to review a film like this with only 420 characters at your disposal so I guess you have to go and watch it yourself.
One hell of a convoluted, messy, confused, and brilliant piece of cinema. It pushes boundaries: both in coherency and in art. Its at once incredibly frustrating and possibly a masterpiece, maybe not even a flawed one, but also maybe a very flawed one. It’s captivating, beautiful, grotesque, uneasy, transcendent, and original, which are some of the most important things one looks for in great art.
"Visually spellbinding, colorfully acted, and comically strange on every level. You lose yourself entirely in every moment like you do in a dream." I'm typically not one of the absurd, but I can not deny being engulfed by each scene and character as if I had somehow been connected to them for hours. Quite a feat of filmmaking indeed.
Leos Carax has made the best Godard film Godard never made; an artistic manifesto & a profound essay on what it means to be actors in a life where both audience and director remain unseen to us. This is a film about life as cinema and cinema as life.
