Thom Yorke & Flea

168

Edward Norton fan dei Radiohead. L’attore è protagonista del nuovo film (in uscita a novembre) “Motherless Brooklyn. Chiama così Thom Yorke. Che risponde con il brano ‘Daily Battles’ in cui figura anche Flea. Norton spiega: “I wanted Thom to write an old-world melancholy ballad, and I wanted his voice to be the properties for [Norton’s character] Lionel’s voice.  Set in the 1950s, Motherless Brooklyn follows private detective Lionel who is tasked with solving the murder of his mentor. It’s so instantly heartbreaking and evocative of so many of the themes to the movie without being overly specific to them, but so much so, I thought the idea of daily battles that everyone is fighting, that you’re trying to rise up and out of”.

Il film è scritto, prodotto e diretto dallo stesso Norton, basato sul romanzo di Jonathan Lethem e vede tra gli attori anche Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin e Leslie Mann.
