Average User Score: 4.8Nov 13, 2013I can quite understand why some will not take favor with The Counselor; one's who can only see what's put right in front of them. The mystical Cormac McCarthy presents some pieces and expects, demands his audience to pay close attention and then decide exactly what happened. Just like most of his characters we are only shown so much, but certainly enough to know up from down and right from wrong. A great thought provoking film, which I admit is one of my favorite types of films. I hate leaving a cinema knowing all I will ever know about a film.

Outside the box is what you should crave!!

Like life itself, Holy Motors takes many unexpected turns. Holy Motors is a unique, surreal ride; aRt on wheels.… Expand
