Lana Del Rey ‘Tropico’ Short Film

Lana Del Rey finally premiered her much-anticipated short film, Tropico. We had previously been presented with a number of trailers for the visual, as now here in full 27-minute form, As directed by music-video veteran fantasist Anthony Mandler , LDR and male model Shaun Ross appear in a few very loosely connected vignettes. In the “ Body Electric” segment, they’re in a dreamy Garden Of Eden amidst various icons:  Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, Jesus. The “Gods & Monsters” part takes place in a fever-dream vision of an L.A. gang-world. And for “ Bel Air,” they dance through some idealized vision of the American countryside.
