daft punks electroma promises to be a surrealist tale of loneliness and longing... as per usual i base my opinions on the critiques of others as i have yet to witness the film... but this clip has me adequately intrigued.
actors portray the robot duo as they drive an 80's model ferrari across a seemingly endless american landscape on a quest to become human... the film is directed and written by the electronic wizards themselves(Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) yet features none of their own music... instead focusing on moving the speechless imagery along through the music of others (everybody from curtis mayfield to brian eno)... i don't know... it's a surrealist movie about robot suicide, what more could i want?
i'm gonna go see it when it plays at the clay theatre, anyone else down?
friday november 30th at midnight.
