Sergio Leone's Arcade Fire Music Video

My Body is a Cage from JT Helms on Vimeo.

Arcade Fire + Sergio Leone = indie rock cowboy opera.

Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West might be my favorite of his films, and my favorite western period. Regardless, it's not an easy one to recommend. The viewer has to be down with Leone's snail pacing, his tight close-ups on squinty faces, and his overall broadness of scope. But damn, is it ever worth it.
