Film Magistery #11: Holy Motors/Fluidity of Identities

Due to YouTube’s too restrictive copyrights policy, this is only an amputated version of this episode. For better and original version of this video please go to LBRY.TV: https://lbry.tv/@FilmMagistery:c/Holy…

Holy Motors is not a work that was made to be liked, but rather to be experienced, and as such it doesn’t belong to the kind of films that are a part of the entertainment film industry for the broad masses. Holy Motors doesn’t rely on symbolism but on associations.

In this episode I discuss does our existence have a meaning, and if it does, does it benefit us? We do not have our own identity, since we are all the time forced to be someone else. We wear someone else’s mask almost in every situation, and we rarely have an opportunity to see our own face in the mirror.

The year in cities, 2019

I have visited these cities and places in 2019. These are all the places I visited and stayed in for at least one night, so here we go (for the 15th time):

Damp, Germany
Vilnius, Lithuania
Viborg, Denmark
Douvrin, France
Beuzeville, France
Carnac, France
Deauville, France
Warsaw, Poland
Vienna, Austria

My 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 lists.

Make it so

I was always a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation series, but I was feeling that I missed many episodes during all these years, so a couple of months ago I decided to watch all of the seven seasons, from the beginning to the end. I am getting closer to the last episode, and since it is the month of Christmas, I think it is in its place to play this little delightful homage to Star Trek in a Christmas-y spirit.
