AceShowbiz - The music video for %cOneohtrix Point Never%'s collaboration with %cIggy Pop%, "The Pure and the Damned", has arrived. The haunting visuals features %cRobert Pattinson% and computer-animated Iggy Pop. The song serves as the soundtrack for Robert's new film "Good Time". The movie's helmers Safdie Brothers also directed the music video.
The grim visuals begins with CGI Iggy Pop standing shirtless outside a house in the middle of the woods while singing the haunting piano ballad. "Everyday I think about untwisting and untangling these strings I'm in," he rhymes. "And to lead a pure life/ I look ahead at a clear sky/ Ain't gonna get there/ But it's a nice dream, it's a nice dream."
The animated punk star then goes inside the house, sitting on Robert's bed. The actor abruptly gets up from the bed, looking extremely agitated. He looks almost unrecognizable with his thick beard. Things take an eerie turn when Robert walks outside and wields a sword while approaching a beast that's feasting on another bloody animal.
The soundtrack for "Good Time" recently won the award for Best Soundtrack at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The melancholy composition is dominated with synths that provide a fiery theme to accentuate the intense movie.
In "Good Time", Robert plays a New Yorker named Constantine "Connie" Nikas who attempts to rescue his brother from prison. The actor previously told %cJimmy Kimmel% that his character "has this affinity with dogs. He thinks he is a dog in a previous life and he thinks he has control over animals and stuff."
Last month, Robert sparked concern after saying that he was asked to perform a sex act on a dog on the set of the indie movie. He later set the record straight, claiming that he was just joking as saying, "We are all huge animal lovers and would obviously never do anything to harm an animal. Everyone involved in 'Good Time' are amazing professionals and have come together to make a movie that I'm extremely proud of."
