“Starlight” is so French that it hurts. Sure, it’s really just a soap opera set in a French abstract morality play. But, it also has Iggy Pop playing the living conscience of a clown. The clown is the dude from Holy Motors. So, all of the arthouse kids are squealing while crickets chirp throughout the rest of the country. Now it’s time for the magic question. Was it any good?
Kinda. What else are you looking to hear? It’s 99 minutes of a film that bounces back and forth between cheap and surreal. The visuals never punch up to a point to grab the attention. Yet, you keep wondering if they’re going to do anything more with Iggy Pop. They don’t and the film ends. Hopefully, you can swing that.
