    So, this is fabulous, audacious, with terrific music and a particularly impressive performance by Adam Driver. After reading Evan's review, I'm kicking myself for not giving it 5 out of 5 stars. My main ding against it was that, for a film concerning itself with female representation in the arts, it focused overmuch on Adam Driver's character. But his comments about Carax's major stylistic choice and female agency really lifted this film in my estimation. Since Edgar Wright's Sparks documentary earlier this year, I've been immersing myself in the music of the Mael brothers. They're quite capable of witty, rapid-fire wordplay (to wit, wordy odes to the missionary position, a song about onomatopeoia, and another tune that manages to rhyme hippopotamus, Hieronymous (Bosch), Volkswagen autobus, and Titus Andronicus), but they focus on instrumental complexity here instead. They meld rock, hip-hop, Broadway musical, and various classical styles effectively (including Romantic, post-Romantic, Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, and John Adams' Nixon in China). Carax's Holy Motors would probably make my Top 50. I'm not sure yet if I love this one quite as much, but I can't see a Best of 2021 list where this doesn't make my Top 3, in a year with several very impressive films.
