Film nerds are talking a lot about Holy Motors, but whenever they say anything about it, it usually makes either them or the movie sound insufferably pretentious and moderately goofy. So maybe the movie is those things, or maybe it's just a movie that people are having a hard time describing without sounding like assholes? What, I don't know. Don't look at me, I haven't seen it. I do know that most of those pretentious and goofy people are saying Holy Motors is fantastic, though, so there's that! There's also this US trailer for it. What there isn't is a Portland release date, but we'll keep you posted.
