Kanye West Premieres ‘Runaway’ Movie (VIDEO)

Kanye West’s much-anticipated full-length film ‘Runaway’ has been released on YouTube, and just as anticipated, it’s as odd and beautiful as everyone expected it to be.

Set to several songs by West, the premise of the 34-minute video — at least as far as Celebuzz can understand — is this: A phoenix in the form of gorgeous and naked Victoria’s Secret supermodel Selita Ebanks crashes to the earth and is taken in by West (and treated to a random Michael Jackson parade). Despite being beautiful, said phoenix just can’t seem to fit in, and eventually gets ostracized by West’s snooty friends. That causes her to get angry … really angry, and fly skyward in a fiery rage. The end. Watch it below:

The shots and imagery are quite vivid, and West’s music as the soundtrack adds not just the context, but also the driving point of the video. When it comes down to it, you could put up 35 minutes of the off-air color bars backed to Kanye’s music, and it’ll still be quite watchable.

So, Celebuzz faithful: What do you think of Kanye’s latest artistic endeavor? Amazing and artsy, or long and confusing? Vote in the poll, and comment it up!
