Lana del Rey - Tropico

Finally it's out! We have been waiting for so long, and today at last Lana del Rey's short film "Tropico" starring (amongst others) Shaun Ross and herself as the main character was released!

Lana del Rey was attending the official premiere at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. At the same time she announced her upcoming album Ultraviolence, that will be released in 2014.
Of course we would have loved to be there personally too, we have already been lucky enough to meet her twice, and she is a wonderful person.
The short film exceeded our expectations, and we absolutely love the Lana del Rey-typical-vintagey way it is shot, from the garden of eden in the beginning, with Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, to strippers, to guns, there is nothing missing, and you accompany the two main characters through what seems to be three different lifes.
The movie is accompanied by the songs body electric, gods and monsters, and Bel Air, they were chosen perfectly for the film and the different scenarios.
Finally, you still have a happy end, with the couple cleansed of their sins, dressed in innocent white, dancing in the bright sunlight and finally, together, ascending to heaven.
