The Neon Demon is pretty great. Infact, I would go as far to say it’s brilliant. Besides being visually stunning and an electrifying soundtrack, the fashion and the characters (played by a genius cast), make this summer film a hunt for years to come!
Here’s the Top 5 Things We LOVE about it:
5) Elle Fanning
Doe-eyed and exquisite, she brings a certain depth to ‘Jessie’ that keeps you guessing the entire film.
4) The Soundtrack
Fandango made a playlist of this creepy, catchy, playlist for the film that will let you slip right into the darkness in a cool and creative way.
Here’s a preview sampling of the tracks:
“So I Cried,” The Myrmidons
“Bubble Sex,” Tommy Seebach
“Drone Logic,” Daniel Avery
“Fade To Grey,” Visage
“Knights In White Satin,” Giorgio Moroder
“Fyt,” This Mortal Coil
“(Theme From) Valley Of The Dolls,” Dionne Warwick
“An Ending,” Brian Eno
“Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” Bauhaus
“Magic Fly,” Space
“The Number One Song In Heaven,” Sparks
“Won’t Somebody Dance With Me,” Lynsey De Paul
“My Elusive Dreams,” Tammy Wynette And George Jones
“Savage Love,” Death In Vegas
“Pop Pop Shoo Wah,” Erotic Drum Band
“Coum,” Death In Vegas
“Boy,” Book Of Love
3) Jena Malone
She puts the itch and witch and we’re loving it! Her scary delivery keeps you guessing up to the very end on what her motive is with Jessie (Elle Fanning).
The lesser of two evils, Gigi – one of the two model nemesis’s of Jessie is cool as a cucumber and calculated to boot! She puts the itch and bitch and we love to hate her.
1) Abbey Lee
Probably the most haunting archetype in the film is Sarah (the counterpart model to Gigi). With a jawbone that will seriously cut a bitch up, and eyes that pierce like vampires, she is the epitome of what the film embodies: “How far will you go for beauty?” She is driven, determined, and dangerous!
