The 8 Weirdest Bits From Lana Del Rey’s NSFW Short Film ‘Tropico’

Written by Sarah Bella on December 6, 2013

Lana Del Rey‘s short film Tropico had its world premiere last night and it didn’t take long to find its way online. Written by Del Ray and directed by Anthony Mandler, the 27-minute long production has been billed as a tale of redemption, but it kind of just looks like three music videos stapled together with some spoken word inbetween.

Here at Music Feeds, we know you’re busy, so just in case you don’t have time to watch the whole overblown NSFW extravaganza, which can be found in full below, we’ve recapped the best bits for you. You’re welcome.


1. Apparently there were unicorns in the Garden of Eden.

2. Also Elvis and Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne, but UNICORNS! I would’ve paid way more attention in R.E. if I’d known about that.

3. No, Lana! Don’t eat the apple!

4. This is gangbanger Lana and her crew shooting into the sky. Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she got, she’s still Lana from the block.

5. Today I learnt that pole dancing involves a wind machine and swimming about in dollar bills, kind of like Scrooge McDuck but sexier.

6. Mr Lana, aka Shaun Ross, says, “You know it’s not always going to be this way, right?” I think he’s referring to their tragic thug life where she’s a stripper and he runs with a badass gang, but they made it look so glamorous I’m not really sure why we’re they’d want it to be any different. Yolo.

7. Redemption involves wearing all white and frollicking in a wheat field.

8. And if you do enough of it, you’ll get beamed back up to heaven, UFO styles.
