Shia LaBeouf Live Streams a Video of Himself Watching His Own Movies: Watch Now!.

LaBeouf fans can watch the actor via digital-art website NewHive as he works his way through his entire filmography, an endeavor he’s calling #AllMyMovies. According to Collider, he’s screening them consecutively in reverse chronological order, 24 hours a day for the next three days at Angelika Film Center in New York City. In the early minutes of the feed, Shia, bearded and determined, seems to be enjoying his self-imposed tenure at one of the city’s most beloved movie theaters.

The feed will inevitably be dismissed as adolescent performance art, and perhaps also a publicity stunt. (The first movie LaBeouf watched was Man Down, directed by his longtime collaborator Dito Montiel, which is currently unreleased.) But there’s an uncanny and kind of magical quality to watching Shia watch Shia. The actor, 29, is at a familiar crossroads: The baby face and rockin’ curls from his Disney days led to a legitimate adult career, both commercial and critical, before a recent glut of little-seen projects and public bad behavior and substance abuse at Broadway theaters.

Unlike, say, some of the more vulgar recent stunts by his contemporaries, LaBeouf’s latest exploit feels like an inspired bit of self-indulgence: a winking nudge at the eye-rolling chorus he inspires online and a clever act of self-examination. In the way some of us are terrified to revisit our online pasts, LaBeouf is revisiting his real collected works for all to see. (If Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a painful memory for you, imagine how it feels for him.) It’s hard to picture many other young actors making themselves so weirdly vulnerable in such a public venue, especially at a moment of career uncertainty. Either way, I suspect anyone who visits all or part of the impromptu LaBeoufest will be surprised by the ambition of his 15 years on screen, Wall Street and Transformers sequels aside.
