I wish I was tough enough to get run over and then pop right back up to my feet.

The ? Motorist reveals that in 1906 the British were about ten years behind the visionary Melies and, by extension, French cinema. This gap has only widened in the decades since.

It doesn't live up to Melies, but also only 3 minutes long, so its camera trickery doesn't get too old.

Whimsical, nonsensical and fun, even if it feels a bit like a ripoff of Melies.

Lol not all that great, the synopsis is the best part about it. "A magical glowing white motorcar dismembers policemen, drives up buildings, flies through outer space and can transform into a horse and carriage. This was a British effort to top Melies at his Sci-Fi/fantasy/comedy trick films."

Almost on par with Melies' work, only late and less impressive.

Nice little short showing off the magic of the movie camera. Thank God they had the good sense to end it 2 and a half minutes in.
