Jonze always manages to come through with the goods. Loved this. Somehow feel this was made to be part of something bigger.

cinematographic look, narrative feel but what the fuck is this about ? I don't get it.

Spike Jonze never disappoints. (oh, and: Kids. Just Kids.)

According to the band: "It's not a video. It's a short film; we're still working on it. It's like a science-fiction B-movie companion piece for the record.
Basically, we played Spike some music from the album and the first images that came to his mind had the same feeling as this idea for a science fiction film I had when I was younger. My brother and I and Spike wrote it together, which was really fun-- it was like total amateur hour.
We shot it in Austin and a lot of kids are in the film, and it was great just hanging out with these 15-year-olds for a week and writing down all the funny things they said. It was cool to revert to being a 15-year-old for a little while."

a great day for videos indeed i loved this so much...

i wonder what the hell is going on though. all i can make of it is martial law finally taking effect in this country.

the song is good too... 'all the houses they built in the 70s finally fall, it meant nothing at all, nothing at all...'

i'm so excited for the rest, this project is too good.

born free (-) ginger (+) gummo (/) what's going on? (x) spike jonze did it so it must be great = this is still the best video arcade fire has ever had.

I liked the kids with the bb guns. I wish the "suburban war" metaphor in the song was illustrated a bit more subtly.

Yes some Harmony and Larry in there... maybe it will go in a Red Dawn direction from here?

...or is the piece not really working as a longer form thing and they cut this together instead...?

either way, it's totally working.

Spike Jonze best music video in years and years. Not a fan at all of The Arcade Fire record, but if this is going to be part of a longer film set to the music, sign me up.
