David Knight - 2nd Oct 2018

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson directs a music video for LCD Soundsystem, starring the marvellous Sissy Spacek and David Straithairn as a married couple of ageing scientists who make a momentous discovery.

They discover the secret of teleportation. But unfortunate events conspire to turn this astonishing feat of scientific brilliance into a blip of human history.

Johson's flirtation into music video is perhaps an unlikely vehicle for a LCD Soundsystem song but it really works. The director and his Twilight Zone-style short story wisely makes the most of the quality of its star performers. As a result it will stays in the memory.
