I recently watched (again) “The Beach”, the 2000 film directed by Danny Boyle and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Virginie Ledoyen, Guillame Canet and Tilda Swinton. I don’t know if you saw it but there’s a scene, when DiCaprio, Ledoyen and Canet arrived at the beach where DiCaprio looks at that (apparently) heavenly place and there’s “Porcelain” by Moby as background music.
I found out A$AP Rocky sampled the song for his “A$AP Forever”. I don’t particularly like rap so to me, A$AP is most of all the cool guy in Lana Del Rey’s video of “National Anthem”, even if I obviously know he’s one of the most relevant and coolest singers of the music business.
The video of “A$AP Forever” has been directed by Dexter Navy and I find it kind of mesmerizing. The visual effects are amazing.
If you haven’t listened to “Porcelain” by Moby, please do!
