    Electroma is a quiet, surreal, psychadelic short film (a bit over an hour). It is for the type of person who will spend a long time looking at art or listening to music and doing nothing else; it is not much like Interstella 5555 at all. I cannot really argue with the people that disliked the film. I happened to be in a very chill mood when I watched it and found it very interesting.

    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.

    You have to be pretty much a fan of movies like Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" to like and appreciatehis film. Many people were turned off by this movie, but at least everybody can notice the amazing cinematography. Daft Punk really did their homework on that end. No pun intended. There was a story shown which was ok, but what was also really different was the music used. I guarantee that everyone who went to see this expected some crazy Daft Punk tunes or at least something like their music, but this infact was not the case. This is not saying that the music was bad either, infact it fit the movie. Overall, its not a bad film and is worth seeing for its amazing cinematography that I think is one of the best cinematography efforts I've seen in a while. Aside from that, its nothing special. The Daft Punk jackets were dumb too, but hey, it's Daft Punk.
