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

It’s easy to make fun of Shia LaBeouf’s self-proclaimed performance art. According to a press release, the 29-year-old is watching his films in reverse chronological order, starting with his latest film Man Down, at the Angelika Film Centre in New York as a part of his latest show called ‘ALLMYMOVIES’. Even when his pieces, if they can be called that, aren’t cringe-inducing — a la the time he wore a bag on his head that read “I am not famous anymore” — they can often lead to downer results. Wednesday kicks off with Transformers: Dark of The Moon, Thursday it’s Constantine, and the three-day screening ends with Nasicaa of The Valley of The Wind. Since early October, LaBeouf has teased the experiment by tweeting context-free lines from all the movies he’s appeared in over the course of his career.

Now, in addition to being able to watch his many masterpiece movies (Holes, anyone?), fans can watch the actor watching himself for three days straight. After all, LaBeouf said he was raped during a piece called “#IAmSorry,” in which he sat silently in a room and, more or less, let his audience/participants do whatever they wanted with him. On Tuesday, for instance, he tweeted a link to the official press release announcing his performance, which launched on Tuesday with a screening of Man Down. Even if the piece could be compared to the iconic work of Chris Burden or Marina Abramović, that’s no fun. “One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me,” he wrote of the encounter. “There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well.” “#AllMyMovies,” LaBeouf’s current piece and another collaboration with Luke Turner and Säde Rönkkö Rönkkö of “#IAmSorry,” is a lot less heavy and a lot more fun.

The livestream can be seen here — and here is the schedule: As of early Wednesday morning, LaBeouf had only been at this for about 14 hours — and unfortunately, this enterprising reporter missed his reaction to some of his most controversial, explicit work: Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” films, which include hardcore sex scenes shot with “digitally added porn doubles,” as MTV put it last year. It would have been interesting to see LaBeouf’s reaction to such raw material; instead, we will have to see if he falls asleep — as many did — during the wretched “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” sometime around 6:30 a.m. He also appeared in Sia’s music video for Elastic Heart, which was accused of glorifying paedophilia, and collaborated with art students at Central St Martins, where he appeared in 36 video clips.

Wednesday. “I think it’s so interesting the way Shia’s reclaiming his career,” Erik Rogers, also a performance artist, told Gothamist at the theater. “I’ll be interested to see how he’s reacting to his own stuff, because I think he’s going to amp up the performance of like, this is me watching my own film, particularly in Nymphomaniac, where he’s got some kinda questionable scenes.” So — is this terrible, or interesting? One could say LaBeouf’s piece, or stunt, is the ultimate exercise in narcissism — a ploy by a whimsical, troubled celebrity who’s spent time in rehab. I don’t know if it’s traditional but, yeah it’s definitely something.” Also, while some of LaBeouf’s previous work seemed to rub his A-list status in the face of viewers, “#AllMyMovies” includes them. “Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” for example, grossed well over $300 million dollars.
