Welcome to Elizabethtown

Hey guys, it's Donnie...I'll admit it outright: I love Cameron Crowe.

His pictures just have an amazing sense of honestly, of vulnerability. He writes movies that are incredibly personal, and because they mean so much to him they almost always resound with audiences. Even something as complex and "high concept" as Vanilla Sky has, at its core, a huge heart thumping out a very simple story of love. As far as his use of music in his movies, well, who hears Peter Gabriel and DOESN'T think of Cusack with boombox raised high?

His latest project, Elizabethtown, stars Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, and a whole gaggle of others, including Susan Sarandon, Judy Greer and D-Day himself, Bruce McGill. Late last week we saw a few teasing stills float out online and earlier this week we got a taste of the teaser poster (Check it out below). Well we're finally getting some pictures that move.

Crowe put together a little montage music video of clips set to a fantastic song that really seems to capture the overall tone of the movie. Most of it is dialogue free and jumbled up and out of context, but it doesn't matter, it's still gorgeous.

It's an AICN exclusive, so click this link and check this out. I love it.
