Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best.
It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
In our humble opinion Rian Johnson directed one of the best episodes of the award winning crime drama Breaking Bad, back in season three, which was simply entitled Fly. It was a stand out chapter of the on-going story about a chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin, which featured nothing more than a simple fly.
Of course Johnson has also written and directed two notable movies, (Brick and The Brothers Bloom), and now his latest offering a sci-fi, time traveling thriller Looper is about to get it’s cinematic release. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis it deals with a futuristic gangland killer who works for the mob in the year 2042 and kills people who are sent from the year 2072. Things go a little crazy when he recognizes one victim as his future self.
As you’ll notice from the trailer above that Gordon-Levitt looks a bit different, this is due to the prosthetic make-up he is wearing so that he looks more like a younger version of Bruce Willis. Disappointed that he wasn’t dressed in a white, blood and oil stained, wife-beater vest.
