Joan of Arc

The catchiest song on Arcade Fire's new album "Reflektor", cleverly set to footage from "The Passion of Joan of Arc" (1928), directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer; Jeanne d'Arc (1900), directed by Georges Méliès; and Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922), directed by Benjamin Christensen. Watch below...

Who made this video? Some college Freshman in intro film?

I'm creating a video for their new song "Porno". It's going to be clever as well.

Dreyer would love this!

This is not the "catchiest" song on the release. It is, though, probably the most banal song on this horribly ostentatious album. Enjoy!

I definitely heard what you heard, she sounded off at times in "It's Never Over" for this concert. Maybe she couldn't hear herself well, maybe she wasn't feeling it that night. I saw them a week or two after this show in Austin, TX and she was great for that show. Her performances stole the show. They did a cover of "Heart of Glass" by Blondie as an intro to Sprawl II, the combination of those two songs back to back with her on vocals was the best part of the Austin show.
