I never really had a musical love affair with Adam Green, neither with his solo stuff nor with his early days as one half of The Moldy Peaches. This one here made me have a major crush immediately though.
Mr. Green is back with a new film and an accompanying album/soundtrack, and visually he's going all Wenzel Storch on us. It's a papier mâché-driven take on the classic Arabian Nights tale, which sees Green starring as Aladdin, who's living with his dysfunctional family in a “regular” American town ruled by a corrupt Sultan with a decadent socialite daughter.
Have an official glimpse at the madness below. “Adam Green's Aladdin“ stars Natasha Lyonne, Macaulay Culkin, Har Mar Superstar, Devendra Banhart, Zoe Kravitz and many other familiar faces. Release date in the US is April 15. A tour will follow this spring.
