Filmmaker Jeff Nichols, along with longtime collaborators Michael Shannon and Lucero reunite for a brand new short film/music video, entitled Long Way Back Home.
No more time to waste, Lets watch some goddamn Americana.
Hells yea! Three of our favorite things in the world, something written and directed by Jeff Nichols, something being sung by his brother Ben Nichols aka the lead singer of Lucero, and Michael Shannon acting his ass off.
Okay.......okay, we know this short film is nothing brilliant. However, it is very cool, and it does a very good job of reminding all of us about the amazing feature length films that these artist have worked together on in the past, not to mention what could be on the horizon. From Shotgun Stories, to Take Shelter, Mud, Loving, and our most favorite, Midnight Special. All of those films are unique Americana masterpieces and must see cinema in our humble opinion.
Other actors who appeared in the short film titled "Long Way Back Home," Scoot McNairy, Garrett Hedlund, and one of Nichols go to guys, Paul Sparks. Lucero's latest Album, Among the Ghosts, is out now from Liberty & Lament.
