Watch Lana Del Rey’s Sinful Pop Culture Magnum Opus, The Epic Short Film ‘Tropico’

Presented without commentaryLana Del Rey’s 27 minute short film directed by Anthony Mandler and starring model Shaun Ross alongside perennial members of the pop culture pantheon like John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Stripper With A Heart Of Gold and Wayward Lover archetypes, Tropico has arrived. 
Billed as a “Biblical story of sin and redemption” and set to three tracks from the reissue of her debut album Born To Die: The Paradise Edition (‘Body Electric’, ‘Gods and Monsters’ and ‘Bel Air’), it’s Lizzy’s most ambitious, cinematic work to date – or at least, since the music video for ‘Rideher previous Mandler collaboration.  
In related news, Del Rey revealed at last night’s Tropico premiere at the Hollywood Bowl that her sophomore album will be titled Ultraviolence. Viddy well.
