Cool Videos: The Spike Jonze and Arcade Fire short film The Suburbs
The Spike Jonze-directed short "Scenes from the Suburbs" has been making the rounds at a few film festivals this year but is now officially available online for you to watch.
Clocking in at 28-minutes, the short was directed by Jonze as a companion piece to Arcade Fire's latest album "The Suburbs" (it will be bundled with a deluxe reissue of the CD on August 2).
Director Spike Jonze teams up with Arcade Fire to create a thirty-minute short film inspired by their critically acclaimed album, The Suburbs, and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia. Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Win Butler & Will Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.
