Tough it out. Tony knows nothing but tough times living, as he does, in the bleak circus of the slums he calls home amongst denizens of the underworld: the crippled pimp, the lonely housewife, the neighborhood gay and his macho father, the prostitutes, the small-time politician, and the Yankee pedophile. This is his story and the story of the world he lives in: a hopeless, closed-in decrepit world gone to seed.“ Movie Trailer

    The Valtari Mystery Film Experiment by Sigur Rós (2012)

    „Upon the release of their album valtari, Sigur Rós gave a dozen filmmakers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the album. The idea was to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom. Among the filmmakers are alma har’el, andrea arnold, and floria sigismondi. At the same time, the band invited fans to contribute their own personal creations.“
