This is a bit of an odd Jam of the Day, as it is a short film and not necessarily a single track. It has a pretty high pedigree. It was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (The Phantom Thread, There Will Be Blood), cinematography from Darius Khondji (Se7en, The City of Lost Children) and choreographed by Damien Gilet (Suspiria). It's a beautiful piece of work that incorporates three pieces from Yorke's new record ANIMA: "Not the News," "Traffic," and "Dawn Chorus." You can watch it on Netflix.
