The Norwegian band Royksopp is probably best known in the States as the guys who did That Song ("Remind Me") for one of the Geico caveman commercials. So you might be forgiven for thinking that they aren't all that. But their latest CD, Senior, is a great ambient treat that subtly fuses so many influences into something original & was one of my favorite CDs of last year. This short film uses music samples from Senior as a soundtrack to an apocalyptic storyline that is one part weird, one part unintentionally hilarious, and one part greatly disturbing. Perhaps the most disturbing thing about the film (at least from an American perspective) is that it is not shot in some obscure slum in another country, but...entirely in Detroit. (If you want to be further horrified by what's become of Detroit, check out this slideshow of photos from the book The Ruins of Detroit.)
