Fantastic Fest 2012: ‘Holy Motors’ and ‘Berberian Sound Studio’

For the latest in our marathon of Sordid Cinema ‘casts, we take a look at two highlights of the Fantastic Fest lineup. First up is Peter Strickland’s audio-nerd dreamland Berberian Sound Studio, starring Toby Jones as a UK sound engineer who finds himself working on a particularly nasty giallo. Next up is a movie that’s been making waves since Cannes: Leos Carax’s Holy Motors, which may very well defeat us in our attempts to even properly describe it.
