Watch: Lana Del Rey releases ‘Tropico’ movie + announces new album ‘Ultraviolence’...

The short film 'Tropico' by Lana Del Rey is causing quite a stir because of a line she quoted from Allan Ginsberg’s poem 'Howl'. “Dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix” she cites. Well if her plan was to attract further attention to the film through controversy, it sure IS working. You might like it if you're into the cringe-worthy spoken word. But me? Not here for it.
'Tropico' is described as “an epic tale based on the biblical story of sin and redemption,” with Lana in the role of Eve. Last night, she attended the film's premiere, which took place at Cinerama Dome at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. The Anthony Mandler directed clip is basically a giant music video of songs from her 'Paradise' EP ('Body Electric', 'Gods And Monsters' and 'Bel Air'). Before debuting the serially-delayed film, she announced that her sophomore new album will be called 'Ultraviolence'. The 27-minute clip is available to watch inside!
