Very often music is used as a motivation in films as well as a compositional tool. Earlier this year, Keira Knightley used music to get over a break-up and a head start on her road to fame in "Begin Again," and in "Rudderless," a box of old demo tapes will be key to solving one man's grief.

And now we can see the result as the first stills from the film have arrived online for your viewing pleasure.

Anton Yelchin Kate Mara After The Disco
Indie bands doing short films is kinda so hot right now. As it becomes increasingly challenging to get noticed above the fray, bands have taken to the medium to give fans and newcomers alike a different way of entry for their music. Of course, Arcade Fire teamed with Spike Jonze for "The Suburbs," while Beach House took the more DIY route and made "Forever Still" themselves. And now a couple more bands are stepping towards cinema with interesting results.

All good things must come to an end, and Ethan Hawke's glorious summer of 2013, in which he starred in the most universally beloved indie darling of the year ("Before Midnight") alongside a bona fide horror movie hit ("The Purge"), has now come to an inglorious finale with his starring role in the ridiculously stupid car chase movie "Getaway." As artless as "Before Midnight" was arty and plodding as "The Purge" was thrilling, "Getaway" is like slamming your foot on the gas while the car is still in park. There's a whole lot of wheel spinning but it never really goes anywhere.

Movie villains are a special breed, usually choosing to hatch elaborate, complicated schemes to complete a goal that would probably be easier to execute if they just went and did it themselves the old-fashioned way. So when some random bad guy wants something from a bank, does he hire a bunch of goons to rob the place? Maybe commit some kind of fraud to get his hands on it? Nope, he gets a race car driver to do his bidding for him all while on a ticking clock...

Having worked with folks like Steven Spielberg, the Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, David Mamet, Gus Van Sant and more, William H. Macy has no shortage of experience to draw on as he makes his feature directorial debut. But first, he'll need to get a cast together and he's done just that.

Review: Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers' Is A Semi-Conventional Genre Flick & Future Cult Favorite

This will make you feel old: it has been 18 years since Harmony Korine wrote “Kids” at the age of 21, with the Larry Clark-directed film proving to be something of a firecracker in the midst of mid-'90s indie cinema, by turns controversial, seedy, and honest. Korine made his own directorial debut with 1998’s “Gummo,” and over the last 15 or so years has made films that (with the possible exception of “Mister Lonely”), push aesthetic and critical boundaries further and further, culminating in 2009’s “Trash Humpers,” a film shot on a VHS camcorder, featuring a cast in old-people masks generally trying to provoke the audience into walking out. So where could he possibly go from there?

In what was easily one of the most anticipated films of SXSW, based on the wildness factor alone, Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" wasn't so much unspooled as unleashed on audiences in Austin last night. And while reaction was swift as the credits rolled, and discussion will continue about where this candy colored movie will fit in the director's ouevre, as we made clear in our review from Venice, "a piece of pop art."
