Arcade Fire + Spike Jonze = The Suburbs

No, we’re not kidding¹; If you add those two names together you do, in fact, get “The Suburbs.”

Mr. Jonze and Arcade Fire have taken our suburban world and turned it upside down by essentially asking the question, “What if we got all the security we asked for?” Their answer: It probably wouldn’t take long for it to backfire on us. Moving from lighthearted to dark and twisted, the plot showcases what some economic analysts are already predicting: Today’s suburbs may very well be turning into tomorrow’s slums.

What do you think?
