R.E.M., James Franco Trudge Through 'Blue' L.A.

Lindsay Lohan stars in hazy video for 'Collapse Into Now' cut

By |

Last year, James Franco linked up with R.E.M.'s Collapse Into Now Film Project to direct two music videos for "That Someone Is You" and "Blue," from the band's last album, Collapse Into Now. Until yesterday, the clips were lost in the ether, but the video for "Blue," which features Lindsay Lohan, has surfaced. Cameras trudge through hazy Los Angeles in nighttime scenes, blurry parties and Lohan photoshoots, while vocals from Michael Stipe and Patti Smith swirl around the grainy images. The City of Angels may look beautiful, but she's also strangely unsettling.
