I had to hunt down the howling song that got stuck in my head for a whole week after hearing it.
Engaging conversation with Elliott about the source of his inspiration. I think it's important to remember that the intention of sharing his thoughts was not to push a certain world view, but just to explain how it ends up seeping into his musical expression. The film pairs simplistic images with monochrome colors to draw the focus of the viewer to the sound; specifically, the rupturing depth of the soundtrack.
