See the vid here.

Fluorescent lights engage

Blackbirds frying on a wire

Same birds that followed me to school

When I was young

Were they trying to tell me something?

Were they telling me to run?

The hammer clicks in place

The world's gonna pay

Right down in the face of God and his saints

Claim your soul's not for sale

I'm a dying breed who still believes

Haunted by American dreams

Haunted by American dreams

This is a perfect song choice for the movie. It really captures everything that I love about the film--that slowly building tension of things seemingly getting worse and worse all the time, how we don't know if it's his fears about life or a legitimate fear of some kind of apocalypse coming, his own internal turmoil and the bewilderment of everyone around him.

I love the editing on this. The cut from his hand with the key to his hand with the pills killed me. And that final shot? Perfection.

Oh this is great. Never seen the movie, but this vid so perfectly evokes a sense of dread and inevitability -- but also makes me care about this man and what happens next.
