This week in Slate, Elbert Ventura writes about the return of French auteur Leos Carax. Elsewhere, Slate’s Dana Stevens reviews his new film, Holy Motors, which she calls “an aesthetic and philosophical log flume.”
In this new clip, exclusive to Brow Beat, the mysterious Monsieur Oscar (played by frequent Carax collaborator and alter-ego Denis Lavant) is asked to explain why he continues working his strange job, which calls on him to perform various roles—banker, beggar woman, kidnapper, father—in the lives of seemingly unrelated Parisians.
