Watch Lana Del Rey’s Short Film ‘Tropico’

Tropico

Lana Del Rey has dropped her short film entitled Tropico, directed by Anthony Mandler, who’s also attached to direct Daniel Radcliffe in Tokyo Vice next year. Del Rey’s music has been noted for its cinematic sound and its references to various aspects of pop culture, particularly that of the1950s and 1960s Americana. The self-described “gangsta Nancy Sinatra,” draws influence from Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Britney Spears, as well as from poetry and film noir. However, Tropico is somewhat of a change; billed as “an epic tale based on the biblical story of sin and redemption,” with Del Rey in the role of Eve. The 27-minute long film features the songs “Body Electric,” “Gods And Monsters” and “Bel Air” from her Paradise EP, with each song accompanying one of three chapters of the story. The video premiered at The ArcLight Hollywood, and at the event, she also revealed the title to her next album. “I really just wanted us all to be together so I could try and visually close out my chapter before I release the new record, Ultraviolence,” she told fans.
