We love Flying Lotus for a number of reasons, one of which being his attention to detail and the total package. With such a pristine aesthetic, we often wonder where some of Steve Ellison’s influences come from outside of music. Thanks to the Criterion Collection, the Los Angeles musician lists his ten favorite films. Included on the list are a number of notable indie films, including Being John Malkovich, Do The Right Thing, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and The Life Aquatic. He also throws in a number of foreign films, and even the Beastie Boys anthology of groundbreaking music videos. Yeah, this is an awesome list, and yet another great way to get into the mind of one of our favorite artists.
Head over to the Criterion Collection to check out his picks.
