Watch Phoenix’s Sofia Coppola-Directed Video for “Chloroform”

phoe Watch Phoenixs Sofia Coppola Directed Video for Chloroform

The story behind Phoenix’s latest video for “Chloroform,” which appears on their recent album Bankrupt!, is kind of a cute one. Thomas Mars of the band is married to filmmaker Sofia Coppola (daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, writer/director of Lost In Translation), and so the two decided to join forces, creating something that showcases their respective skills. The visuals for “Chloroform” are wonderfully dramatic: black-and-white, slow-motion, and lots of beautiful-crying. Not sure who inspired what, but hey, couples who make music videos together stay together, right?
