Yesterday, Travis Scott’s film “Circus Maximus” became available on YouTube after being exclusive on Apple Music for about a week.
Described as a “surreal and psychedelic journey, uniting a collective of visionary filmmakers from around the world in a kaleidoscopic exploration of human experience and the power of soundscapes”, the one-hour fifteen-minute movie is a companion to his recently released album, “Utopia“.
Co-directed by Travis himself along with Gaspar Noé (known for Climax and Enter the Void), Nicolas Winding Refn (renowned for Drive and The Neon Demon), Harmony Korine (famous for Spring Breakers and Gummo), Khalil Joseph, and Valdimar Jóhannsson (director of Lamb), the film’s objective is to breathe life into the album’s music and lyrics. Within the movie, various songs from the album receive a visual treatment.
Initially, “Circus Maximus” premiered in select AMC theaters on July 27th, just a day before “Utopia’s” release on July 28th. The film continued its screenings at AMC theaters for an additional three days, from July 31st to August 2nd, before becoming available to Apple Music users.
