Songstress Courtney Love asked filmmaker Michael Mouris to create a short, animated movie about her style evolution, resulting in a spot-on and colorful clip entitled, "The Dark Night of the Soul." It starts off with a conversation between Courtney and Karl Lagerfeld, who warns her, "You're drowning in The Kook....Your lungs are filling with chiffon and lace and all that glitter bead nonsense, you must come up for air before you die."
In her sleep, Courtney is magically gifted a Birkin Bag, which helps her ditch The Kook, or so she thinks. But Andre Leon Talley tells her differently, remarking, "There is a whole silly world out there filled with Birkins and hobos and diamond-encrusted clutches you can't fit your Tampax in, but you are none of these. You are a rock star. That's just your bag." Finally, Courtney runs into Karl who wisely tells her, "The Kook is never gone." She talked to WWD about the movie, saying "I don't know if Karl has seen this. But it's about him in so many ways." Check it out and tell us what you think.
Some strong language ahead.
