'Holy Motors' - The Strangest Film To Come Out Of Cannes This Year

The Cannes film festival is still one of the most important film festivals in the world in terms of breaking films and creating buzz. The festival is single handily responsible for the careers of such directors as Quentin Tarantino & Kevin Smith, and has made the Weinstein Company one of the biggest players in the movie industry. Those of you non film snobs may not know much about the festival besides its name... so here is a quick crash course. The main award of the festival is called the Palm d'Or. The winner of the Palm d'Or gets all types of free press, praise, and usually ends up a successful film do to the push from the win. But when there is an upset (as there was this year) sometimes more than one film can benefit from just being nominated. This year a movie called 'Amour' took the top prize, but it is the very weird and bizarre 'Holy Motors' that is generating the most buzz. It comes from controversial film director Leos Carax & has a few recognizable names starring in it (Kylie Minogue, Eva Mendes), and judging by the trailer it is bat shit crazy. Maybe that is why it didn't get the win... it may have been too weird for its own good. Check the full trailer out after the jump and keep your eyes peeled for 'Holy Motors' to be hitting a indy cinema near you...
