Denis Lavant, Holy Motors

  • Denis Lavant, Holy Motors
Celebuzz’ list of superlative male performances features several outstanding turns by actors we’d readily call “chameleonic,” but none of them earned that description better than Denis Lavant. As the protagonist in Leos Carax’ gorgeously eccentric film about a (literal) 24-7 performer, Lavant plays more than a half-dozen different characters, transforming himself physically and emotionally as the audience is taken on a rollercoaster ride through multiple movie genres – and eventually, multiple emotional states – en route to something transcendent and truly special.
