Mr X
Tessa Louise-Salomé
FRA 2014
72 min

Mysterious. Brilliant. Uncontrollable. Many words like these have been used to describe French filmmaker Leos Carax in both rapturous and negative ways. One thing that everyone agrees upon is that Leos Carax went from fantastic success as a young, poetic filmmaker to having a reputation as a controversial, mad genius who struggled to get a single film made – and then created HOLY MOTORS , one of the most-loved films of the last ten years. Obsessed with romantic, but destructive, characters, Carax has made breathtaking films with his strong visual style to back up his mythic status. Combining thoughtful interviews with film critics and members of Carax’s cast and crew and moments with the man himself, director tessa Louise-Salomé paints a compelling picture of the thoughtful Mr. X using her own visual poetry. The most captivating element in the film is the endless insight from Carax’s main actor and virtual double, Denis Levant, himself both firecracker and unassuming leading man – a perfect alter ego for Carax.
