The French do it best! Daft Punk probably ranks top or almost top (before or after J.U.S.T.I.C.E) to my all-time faved electronica/techno artists. The guys started sometime in 1987, so they must probably be middle aged men. I’m not saying they’re old, but if my dad is one of the world’s most renowned music gurus, then I’d probably have one helluva-SHWEET life.

The duo is considered one of the most successful electronic music collaborations of all time, both in album sales and in critical acclaim. I wouldn’t wonder why their next step was to release a DVD of their movie. And I’m telling you firsthand, ELECTROMA was BRILLIANT.

Oh! Which reminds me…

Electroma was one of the very few pieces from music artists for film that I actually appreciated. Thinking of Mariah Carey’s perfomance in Glitter made me realize how completely talentless a singer CAN be, for once.

So, Lycos Cinema will be making available exclusively for one day prior to DVD release, the critically acclaimed Cannes Film Festival award-nominee Electroma, a.k.a Daft Punk’s Electroma. Written and Directed by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, the film follows the history of two robots, the members of Daft Punk, on their quest to become human. Fans of Electroma can continue to access the film in Lycos Cinema’s featured rental releases. Go to THIS PAGE for more.
