Manic Street Preachers,
This shortfilm/promo/music video contains graphic violence, body modification scenes, surrealism, nazi symbols, naked female bodies etc. This is after all a promo for Marilyn Manson.
But the problem is that we seen it all before and better then this. That actor Shia LaBeouf is the director is the biggest surprise but unfortunately playing David Lynch is not that original.
Of course Shia LaBeouf is not the only one doing this, and truth to be told this film was more interesting then Kanye Wests Runaway (2010. Just wished that Shia LaBeouf should've stayed away from the surrealism and done something else.
Brought forward something different visually, that Marilyn Manson never done before when it comes to music videos. But perhaps it was just another corporate gig by LaBeouf; he was a hired gun for Marilyn Manson?
However, there are better videos/promos then this, look at for example, Chris Cunningham, Mark Romanek, Spike Jonze etc.
