Call me old fashioned, but wasn't there a time when musicians stuck to what they knew? Come to think of it, that era has long past. I mean we've had the joy of watching Bon Jovi and Madonna display themselves on the big screen so it shouldn't really come as a surprise that Daft Punk have jumped on the celluloid bandwagon with previous effort Interstella5555 and now Electroma, the latter of which I saw yesterday.

I'm no fan of 'arty' films and being frank if this movie wasn't associated with Daft Punk I wouldn't have payed the £7.00 to go see it. Maybe it was the placebic affect of watching Daft Punk on screen or possibly my preoccupation with the impressive choice of soundtrack or maybe even it was just the beer I was drinking, but I rather enjoyed it. With a running time of only 74 minutes, a chronological storyline and of course the presence of the famous robot masks, Electroma successfully allowed me to access the notoriously inaccessible world of 'art house' cinema without leaving my infantile mind baffled by unfathomable plot lines and conceited cinematography. Here's a selection of the aforemention soundtrack:

I just saw this the other day, and I really liked it too. It definitely is an artsy film, but at least it has a story that makes sense, which you wont always get from films of that genre.
