Watch it Now: Spike Jonze’s ‘Scene from the Suburbs’

scenes-from-the-suburbs-1

‘Scenes from the Suburbs’ is Spike Jonze’s short film based on the Arcade Fire album ‘The Suburbs.’ The film was co-written by Win Butler and his brother Will. The movie will be officially released on the deluxe version of the album August 2, but it’s streaming over at MUBI today and tomorrow only. Spike Jonzes last short film, ‘I’m Here‘ was pretty amazing, and I am always down for a darker look at the white underbelly of tranquil suburbia.

Director Spike Jonze teams up with Arcade Fire to create a thirty-minute short film inspired by their critically acclaimed album, The Suburbs, and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia. Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Win Butler & Will Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.
