It's been a long time coming but the Spike Jonze's short film "Scenes From The Suburbs" based on Arcade Fire's latest fantastic record The Suburbs is finally available for online viewing. The trailer is above while the actual short can be seen by clicking here. As for the specifics let's have the official blurb do some explaining:
Director Spike Jonze teams up with Arcade Fire to create a thirty-minute short film inspired by their critically acclaimed album, The Suburbs, and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia. Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Win Butler & Will Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.

As with all things that involve the great Spike Jonze, it's best to go in without anything even remotely spoilery so I'll spare you my thoughts. Of course this isn't the only Spike Jonze/Arcade Fire/The Suburbs effort that exists as you may remember from the wonderful video for the album's title track.
Also the suburbs are scary.
