Shia LaBeouf goes full frontal in the new short film for Icelandic band Sigur Rós
Not many bands are as cinematic as Icelandic musicians Sigur Rós. Their music has been featured in movies like VANILLA SKY and CHILDREN OF MEN to great effect.
Shia LaBeouf is a child actor turned movie star who has headlined the TRANSFORMERS trilogy and played Indiana Jones' son.
Combine those two into an avant-garde short film from director Alma Har’el (wife of SAFE director Boaz Yakin) and you get a very interesting and haunting short film.
Oh, and Shia goes full frontal. Did I forget that part?
Sigur Rós' new album, Valtari, was released to acclaim recently. They put out a challenge to directors to take a $10,000 budget and run with it to create a video for every song on the album. Har’el’s video for “Fjögur Píanó” succeeds in every possible way.
The video, Har’el suggests, “is about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle.” And the dead butterflies festooning the bedroom that imprisons the couple? The director says they symbolize “very beautiful things that die very fast,” the experiences or emotions that couple share ad nauseam. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else,” Har’el says. “For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that.”
Check out the video below. Warning: it is very NSFW.
What do you think of the video? What do you think of Shia's La Beouf? (Sorry, I had to do it!)
|Extra Tidbit:||Shia also directed the music video for Marilyn Manson's "Born Villian." It echoes Alejandro Jodorowsky. Check it out if you can! Also NSFW!|
