Tropico (Single + Video collection) showcases Lana Del Rey’s creative abilities and also stars Shaun Ross. The reasoning for the explicitness warning is due to the controversial nature of the Tropico film that accompanies this collection. For instance,a scene where the “businessmen” get entertained involve some unexpected circumstances from surprise guests. The song “Gods And Monsters” shows Lana Del Rey and her friend (played by Shaun Ross) hanging out with a group of people during what looks like a carefree summertime. My favorite scenes involve them both in the beginning in what looks like their personal paradise (due to the images of a unicorn, and sightings of Elvis Presley, John Wayne, and Marilyn Monroe). I also liked the scene towards the end where Lana Del Rey and her Shaun Ross are blissful and enjoying each other’s presence in what looks to be a bright sunny forest. However, there are various scenes packed in the “Tropico” film (around 27 minutes) to please many people. I am familiar with Lana Del Rey due to previously purchasing her brilliant Paradise music collection and her heartfelt rendition of “Young And Beautiful” from the Great Gatsby soundtrack. However, newcomers to her music would also benefit because included with the Tropico film is a mini music sampler of Gods & Monsters, Body Electric, and Bel Air.

I love Rey's music. This came out as one really damn long music video and was worth it. If even a moderate fan of Lana Del Rey it's worth checking out.

A really difficult to understand film. I wish the picture was bigger, but if you like artsy films this might work for you. It has for me.

With "Tropico" Lana Del Rey shows once again why she's one of the most significant female artists of our time. It wasn't enough to release an EP with three brand new tracks back in December, she had to write a feature film for it and star in it too.

This goes deep, especially the film, but beware: It's heavy.

The songs for themselves aren't that dark, the movie won't please anyone and could turn some (religious) heads, but that's how the art here should be regarded: Pushing boundaries and question what you think of yourself and the world you live in.

A beautiful and must-have intermezzo before her long awaited new album "Ultraviolence".

I don't think this will ever be released on a physical copy, so grab it here and don't miss it. It's one of those rare examples which show what art can be in the 21. century.

Lana Del Rey never disappoints! I wish it had a few more tracks to on it but I still love it!
