MUSIC VIDEOS 37: Phoenix - Funky Squaredance

For this nine-minute promo for Phoenix, Roman Coppola has produced a captivating stream of consciousness, based on his life and family. It is original, creative and extremely watchable. Is this because of who the director is ie Francis Ford's son, or because the individual elements are strange, amusing and entirely unpredictable? We especially like the footage of Copploa's girlfriend dancing and his mother's potato-peeling project as well as one of the band member's mothers singing with her choral society. Genius.
