Thom Yorke’s musical pedigree speaks for itself as an solo artist but also as the frontman for Radiohead. ‘Experimental’ is a popular word you could use to describe his work which includes film scores. Apart from last year’s Suspiria remake score, it’s been five years since his last solo (Tomorrow Modern Boxes). Now in July that long await will be over when Anima is released.
Going back to ‘experimental’ Yorke has joined forces with Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread) to create a mind-‘bending visual piece’…Anima.
The 12 minute short film is been described as an one reeler ‘musical’. Or to be more precise “a motion picture, especially a cartoon or comedy, of 10-12 minutes duration and contained on one reel of film; popular especially in the era of silent films.”
The film is part of promoting Thom Yorke‘s upcoming Album. PT Anderson has used the services of Darius Khondji whose filmography includes Se7en, Okja, Delicatessen and The Lost City Of Z. Some Truly amazing folks behind this project and Netflix will be launching the short and below enjoy the film’s Trailer…
In a short musical film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, Thom Yorke of Radiohead scores and stars in a mind-bending visual piece.

Fans of Thom Yorke‘s music can catch a special sneak preview at selected IMAX cinemas on 26th June . However if you don’t live close any IMAX cinemas, Anima will be launched globally on Netflix on 27th June.
