Description

French director Leos Carax isn't very well known here in the States, but his films are always something of an arthouse event, coming as they do about once a decade. His 2012 film, "Holy Motors" showed up on several best-of-the-2010s lists, and his latest, ANNETTE, premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival to a 20-minute ovation (along with a smattering of boos). An L.A.-set rock musical starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, Carax's film is, according to guest critic Michael Phillips, "the world's most toxic remake of 'A Star Is Born'." (That's mostly a compliment.) In the second half of the show, Josh and Adam continue their World of Wong Kar Wai Marathon with the Hong Kong auteur's 1997 Argentina-set film HAPPY TOGETHER, and music biopic skeptic Josh has some nice things to say about the new Aretha Franklin biopic RESPECT.
