This year's WTF? goes squarely to closing night film Holy Motors - a title which will be potentially the equivalent of the Tree Of Life in terms of you're either all in or you're all out. From director Leos Carax, it follows the mysterious Monsieur Oscar (an extremely versatile, albeit craggy looking Denis Lavant) as he drives around Paris from one 'appointment' to another.Utterly crazy, wild, wacky and really WTF? Holy Motors is the perfect way to close the New Zealand International Film Festival. It's a visual treat even if you don't really have a clue what's going on - the whys and the wherefores are all very much up to interpretation and that's great to provoke debate as the film ends but it certainly gives way to a puzzling experience as it unfolds on the big screen.All in all, Holy Motors is a visual feast; a film which has links with Dali and Lynch and which refuses to be confined by convention and provides the clearest indication that creativity is its own reward.
