Radiohead film

New Radiohead short film hits the big screen in Toronto

Radiohead's Moon Shaped Pool was made available for download only Sunday, May 8 (the CD and LP will come out later in June via XL Recordings), and that very same day the band released a short film for the second single, "Daydreaming." It's now playing in 35mm in Toronto for the first and only time at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Cigarettes & Coffee, Magnolia) and Radiohead, it's an ambient sounding affair, with added woozy and reversed vocals from other tracks on the album. Thom Yorke stars and walks through a hotel, a hospital and a convenience store, among other things.

According to TIFF, the 35mm film canister arrived with a note that read "We've made a
film, here it is. We'd be happy if you played it!'"
