Kid Cudi's debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day was sequenced like a movie. It was broken into five acts and even had narrative voiceovers from Common. The following two projects scaled back on the overt cinematic approach, though they did retain a tight-knit thematic structure. The film-like wonder is back on Indicud, but definitely in a more subtle manner. Quotes from Macaulay Culkin in The Good Son and Adam Sandler in Billy Madison embellish multiple records, and hold true to Cudi's vision of taking his listeners to the movies.
