[vid] All You Need Is Kill
Are you living your life or just waiting to die?
I really enjoyed this movie, and I walked out of the theater in July thinking that the repeating visual gestures in the movie--i.e. they keep killing Cage, and specifically, Rita keeps killing Cage, just as she keeps getting killed--would be the kind of thing that would work well in a Club Vivid-style dance vid, and I promptly commenced setting about finding a song that would work for the idea I had in mind. I had an eye on Steve Aoki's new album Neon Futures I because he's a fantastic DJ and his Japanese-American heritage seemed like it could be a nice nod to the movie's Japanese origins, but it wasn't until I heard the track featuring Fall Out Boy, on my train in from Narita on a bright day in the middle of October, that I was sure I had what I needed. From there, it was a complicated pleasure to make the vid (like me, ohvienna clearly enjoyed Rita's faaaaaaaace. Also Tom Cruise's face. He is, no matter what else, an excellent actor).
Many thanks to intothespin for looking it over and providing comments that made the vid much stronger.
