Legendary singer and DJ Moby is best known for his electronic music and eclectic and charitable lifestyle. But, his music career has long been intertwined with cinematic endeavors as well, given how many of his songs are used film scores.
So, it was no surprise when the Academy invited Moby to choose a favorite film from their archives to watch with a few of his friends as a part of their new web series, Academy Originals. But, never one to be normal, Moby tweeted his invitation to all of his fans and chose quite possibly the most Moby-esque film possible: David Lynch’s “Inland Empire.”
Moby explained to his fans, “If you have a pathological attachment to a conventional three act narrative, you’ll either leave or blow your brains out. If you approach it like a psychedelic experience experimental film, then all of a sudden it’s wonderful.”
