The two drive through the desert en route to Inyo County, CA, where the entire population, regardless of age, dresses in identical attire. Upon arrival in the town, … More

Helmers [Daft Punk] bizarrely choose not to use their own catchy tunes here, the one thing that might have given pic slim commercial legs.

Visually appealing but the pace is 20x too slow

Movie Habit

Worth a look if you enjoy pretty images and a simple message wrapped in layers of artifice.

A strange concoction that will thoroughly entrance some fans while boring others silly.

Audience Reviews for Daft Punk's Electroma

Electroma is the story of two robots (Daft Punk) who break from the norm to express their inner individuality in a world populated by robots, with disastrous consequences. This is an experimental film with no dialog whatsoever, running a generous 74 minutes, and some people may feel it drags on a bit in parts. Even fans of Daft Punk may be left scratching their heads since it doesn?t feature their music but, supposedly, it syncs up with their album Human After All ala Pink Floyd/Wizard of Oz. If you are not into experimental film you will probably much prefer their animated excursion, Interstella 5555, which I highly recommend.

I haven?t tried synchronizing it to their album but I enjoyed it just fine, though it should be said I?m a fan of unusual movies. The photography is very professional considering they are amateur film makers, and there?s enough here to keep your interest, all without the need for words. I hope they?ll continue exploring their visual creativity through cinema in the future, and if it sounds like something you might enjoy, check it out.

This is great. It is shot just perfictly. There is a lot of meaning and thought behind this film. It lost half a star for the Daft Punk jackets. They seemed to pull me out of the movie. It's like high art then bam Daft Punk. Ok next it lost half a star for the sand vagina. I mean what the f*ck? What did that mean, why was it there? Any way great music also and verry compelling. If you are a fan o THX 1138 or Holy Mountain you should check this out. I loved the minamulist sifi 70's approch. I loved this film.
