This eccentric French film made several critics' top ten lists – some placed it right at the top! We follow a mysterious character who travels in a stretch limo to his endless assignments – donning make-up and wigs along the way – to a series of bizarre roles in seemingly parallel lives. Played fearlessly by Denis Levant, Leos Carax's longtime collaborator, he “becomes” an assassin, a captain of industry, a family man, a beggar woman, a subterranean beast, and more. With subtitles. (Leos Carax; France; 2012; 116 min)
