If you’ve always wanted to see Thom Yorke walk through dozens of rooms on the big screen, you may have your chance soon. Paul Thomas Anderson’s hypnotic video for Radiohead’s test single, Daydreaming, is sending a 35MM copy of the video to theaters with appropriate projectors.
Here is the video, which works for me on a meditative level. Despite the fact literally nothing happens as Yorke walks from room to room, t’s a great way to clear your head on a Monday morning:
Radiohead has released their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, and “Daydreaming” is already he second single from the album following Burn the Witch and it’s Wicker Man animated video.
Plus, this is new work from Paul Thomas Anderson, which I’ll take in any way, shape, or form. PTA has worked with Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood, who did the brilliant scores for There Will Be Blood and The Master. Hopefully you’re near a theater with 35MM so you can take this in before a movie. And hopefully this will spur more theaters to start showing more original, interesting content ahead of their movies to create an experience again.
