Saw the trailer to "SPUN". And, personally, I don't think I've seen a movie that looks this insane since "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", "Requim for a Dream" or "Trainspotting".  I totally gotta see this flick.

Hope that insanity actually has a good purpose.

I haven't heard much about the movie, but he directed Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" and that video's pretty good. His videos really vary in quality, though. Some are great and others are disappointing.

i'm a huge fan of jonas akerlund.  i've been waiting for this film for 7 months and i have to wait another 2 months to see it.  you should check out his short film TRY which is on the smashing pumpkins - greatest hits video collection dvd.  he also did music videos for moby and madonna which on their respective dvd video collections.

edit:

he also directed christina aguleria (sp?) music video for "beautiful".

i seriously cant wait for this movie. i love gack-head movies and this is supposed to be cray-zee. not to mention Jason Shwartzman in a starring role, which is undoubtedly great. has anyone seen brittany murphy in public or on tv? it looks like shes been doing a little too much "research" for the movie if you know what i mean.

i mean the bitch is on crack

Which voice does Brittany do on King of the Hill?

She's got an odd hotness about her... Coked up or not.

i think she's luanne, and yeah shes definitely hot. in that sweaty, fucked up, corey feldman way.

dont you just love luannes back story? her whole reason for moving in is that her mom stabbed her dad with a fork.

Yeah, I can't wait to see Spun either. I really like Jason Schwartzman and Brittany Murphy. I love Madonna's "Ray of Light" video too, I'm pretty sure Jonas Akerlund directed it. It's the one where everything is moving really really fast.

That video is so overrated. Falco did the standing in front of a screen with the moving background waaaaaay before in the "Der Kommissar" video and Oliver Stone did the time lapse better in "The Doors."

I'm not a fan of her music, but I appreciate that Christina Aguilera video.  I really loved the aging drag queen sequences. It was surprisingly moving.

ok i'm calling it now, this is lookin to be sum seriously hot shit.

2 simple reasons:
-it's great to see mena suvari being a whore again.
-i just watched a stupid ass movie (intimate stranger(1991)) just cos deborah harry was in it. she's definitely the coolest old chick out there doing anything. even if she ends up in it for only a second.
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms
