The Unloved, Part 8: "Pola X"

Scout Tafoya's video series "The UnlovedThe Unloved" digs deep this month with "Pola X," proving again that unloved films can come from all corners of the world and with all different budgets. While Tafoya has gone to bat for big-budget bombs like "John Carter" and "Ishtar" in the past, he now looks at a film from a beloved filmmaker that simply didn't get the attention it deserved. Critics had fallen in love with "Lovers on the Bridge" and would again with "Holy Motors," but "Pola X" was largely dismissed on release. Scout Tafoya argues against that dismissal.
