Sigur Ros completes its Valtari Mystery Film Experiment video project with “Leaning Towards Solace,” an enthralling short film starring newcomer Elle Fanning and acclaimed actor John Hawkes. The film, directed by The Runaways‘ Floria Sigismondi, marks the sixteenth and final installment in the series, throughout which different artists and directors were given a modest budget to create visual accompaniments to Valtari songs. “Leaning Towards Solace,” which is soundtracked by album tracks “Dauðalogn” and “Varúð,” focuses on a young ballerina (Fanning) and her depressed father (Hawkes) living in a rural desert town. The ending is beautiful, if baffling, and will definitely get you thinking.
