Luke Bather - 15th July 2016

Quentin Dupieux (better known to the world as Mr. Oizo) has delivered an hilariously surreal American Road Movie of sorts for Metronomy's Night Owl (from the new album Summer 08), with band frontman Joseph Mount taking the starring role. He then proceeds to meet a series of grisly ends in the middle of desert, at the hands of the people close to him - including co-star and cult film director Zoe Cassavetes.

Of course it's not just as straight forward as a series of murder vignettes - Dupieux makes no attempt here to hide the mannequin used to replace Mount as he's murdered. It looks hilarous and leaves the audience wondering if we're just watching the unedited B-roll of some low budget thriller.

The grim reaper himself makes a few appearances and Mount even manages to uncover his shoes that for some reason were buried in the desert. Oh, and of course there are human brains crawling about the place like unwanted vermin...
