You Can Watch Shia LaBeouf Watching All His Movies Right Now
Livestreaming has taken a great leap forward over the past few years. Videogame players like PewDiePie are popping up on late-night talk shows and getting television deals. The Twitch marathon of Bob Ross’s Joy of Painting was so popular the livestream site announced that airing a full season of the show will become a weekly occurrence.
And now the performance art piece that masquerades as actor Shia LaBeouf’s real life has dipped into the livestreaming marathon game.
Beginning yesterday at the Angelika Film Center in New York, LaBeouf has embarked on a project entitled #ALLMYMOVIES. The “piece” has the actor watching all 29 of his films, back-to-back, in reverse chronological order, while a camera attached to the seat in front of him broadcasts his reactions live on the Internet. Anyone who wishes to drop in on the project while it broadcasts can do so for free. Currently, he’s watching the first Transformers film, but later on tonight he’ll be enjoying D.J. Caruso’s Disturbia and Emilio Estevez’s Bobby. Tomorrow he’ll be winding the clock back to his early roles in The Even Stevens Movie and Holes. This has to be the Shia LaBeouf-iest thing Shia LaBeouf has ever done.

There’s no sound on the video stream, and no way of knowing what’s happening on the screen—the camera is focused solely on him, most likely due to broadcast rights issues (and the fact that at one point both Nymphomaniac movies were played). Still, it has been entertaining to hear various stories of LaBeouf’s reactions to certain films. It’ll also be fun to see how he manages his circadian rhythm as the marathon continues around the clock. Even though Surf’s Up is playing at dinner time, it still seems like an ideal time for a nap if he needs one.
