Shia LaBeouf wrapped up his live movie marathon yesterday. The actor, who sometimes moonlights as a performance artist, decided to livestream himself watching all 29 of his films, in reverse chronological order, for an art project called #ALLMYMOVIES.
Shia teamed up once again with artists Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö for this collaboration. The trio have worked together on several projects, including 2014’s #IAMSORRY where Shia sat in a room with a paper bag lettered “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE” over his head, letting complete strangers do or say anything they wanted to him.
The #ALLMY MOVIES marathon kicked off on Tuesday afternoon with “Man Down,” at the Angelika Film Center in New York, and finished late last night with Shia’s first film “Nausicaa Of the Valley of the Wind.” Admission into the theater was free and people could stay to watch as long as they wanted with the actor. Fans waited in line for hours for seats to open up with one quoted as saying he was just there because “I want to be close to the crazy.”
The New York press caught Shia snoozing at times through his own films, but most especially during “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” where Shia decided to avoid all pretense and simply took a two hour nap in middle of one of the Angelika’s aisles. Fans reportedly had to step over the star to get out of the movie theater until he later woke and returned to a seat.
Throughout the event, Shia was very welcoming of interactions with fans. However, a number of fans commented that Shia seemed very tired or unfocused during those interactions.
