Title. 

We all know we associate a lot of different things when it comes to Lana's music, so let's try and specify which, if any, movies we think of when we listen to or even just think about Lana's music. 

Could be broad, as in genres, or specific films. Real quick:

Born To Die: 

https://www.imdb.com...yer/vi185837849 For me, I like how the movie, at least at the time, was filled w danger, the different characters, and how everything moved so well and excitingly tragic reminded me of the album 

Paradise: 

https://www.imdb.com...er/vi2046471705 All about inner Hollywood, and how easy it is to go a bit crazy living within those circles. Just a steady looming creepy vibe that you can't help but think about

Ultraviolence: still thinking 

Honeymoon:
 https://www.imdb.com...er/vi3985807385 AND 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5726616/videoplayer/vi983545881

Between the battle of self, and wanting to just take a perpetual holiday. 

Lust For Life:
 
https://www.imdb.com...er/vi3798335513 Vibe-wise as well, it's incredibly dated, the movie, but the frames and how simple the plot is actually lends to its charm, and reminds me of how cherishing the simpler things in life is as much important as any of your future endeavors


Movies can be broad as a genre, or tv series even, or specific to just one/multiple, or particular movie moments even. Don't mind reading those descriptions as to why either.  :candy: 



Ok, go!  :kiss2:

Honeymoon and Salvatore just feel so much like The Godfather I and II, so I'd pick that movie for that album.

more overall vibe than specific movies :

 

Born to Die - Scarface, Tequila Sunrise, Casino (live fast/die young, money drugs glitz & glamour)

Ultraviolence - Candy, Woodshock, Drugstore Cowboy (dark & druggy, basically)

Honeymoon - Buffalo 66, Crazy/Beautiful, Savages (melancholic but also sensual & ott melodramatic; basically a mix of all 3 movies rather than each separately, bc H is such a disparate album mood-wise)

Lust for Life - Almost Famous, The Doors, Across The Universe (i def associate LFL with epic movies abt 70s musicians)

Blue Velvet is probably the most fitting tbh.
