FILM: Kid Cudi and Shia LaBeouf – Maniac
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Kid Cudi may now be known more for his acting exploits than music at the moment, with How To Make It In America and all. The Cudder is now apart of a rather epic short film entitled “Maniac,” which was directed by Shia LaBeouf. The film is about a documentary crew following two serial killers and is as dark as the description entails. LaBeouf’s directing relies heavily on handheld cameras and film noir to create a chilling effect. Honestly this has been done before tho. Remember Natural Born Killers?
This film ain’t for everyone, but it’s an interesting watch.
