Spike Jonze directs the Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”

Posted from The Citrus Report

You really need to have grown up in the suburbs to really understand it, to write about it, to articulate it. Spike Jonze and Arcade Fire we can only assume have lived the suburban life, because they nail a feeling in this “Suburbs” video. It has the boredom down pat, just the inability to do anything of substance, but great at wasting time, being angry at that boredom, etc. That is being a kid in the suburbs. And really, most of the stuff in this video happened when we grew up in the suburbs, so there you go.
