Mr. Musicbox Underwater

Video installation.

This song is from a collaboration J. Spaceman did with Sun City Girls and is also on the soundtrack from the movie Mister Lonely. If you've not seen it, the story centers on an oddball group of impersonators and more specifically the relationship between Michael Jackson, Diego Luna of Y tu mamá también fame and Marilyn Monroe, played by Samantha Morton who's childlike wide-eyed primality is breathtaking. As an actress I think she's quite spectacular and this role almost tops Morvern Callar. Almost. Other impersonators include Madonna, James Dean, Abraham Lincoln and Charlie Chaplin [a very scary man!] amongst others. Surprising and raw, it will stay with you as only the best stories can.
