Sigur Rós - Fjögur píanó Video- "an acidic trip told in a backwards (and sideways) Tarantino-esque way"
In what might be a stellar attempt to vanquish any lingering thoughts about the forgettable - "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", Shia LaBeouf has lended his formidable acting skills to the Sigur Rós video for the seductively haunting “Fjögur Píanó. Directed with a surrealistic touch by Alma Har’el, it is an acidic trip told in a backwards (and sideways) Tarantino-esque way. While it may or may not make sense to the viewer, it is thoroughly engaging and begs to be watched multiple times. Don't try to interpret it. It may be weird but definitely not more so than any "Meet the Kardashians" episode and not as creepy or disturbing as that boyfriend on "Mrs. Eastwood & Company". Give me beautifully sad music underneath ponderous yet strangely effecting imagery and you got me.
