#ALLMYMOVIES was a performance art project undertaken by the trio known as Labeouf, Rönkkö & Turner. During the project, one of the group's members, actor Shia Labeouf, watched all of his films in reverse chronological order for 72 hours straight at the Angelika Film Center in New York City, beginning on November 10th, 2015. The entirety of the event was live-streamed on the net art site New Hive, with a camera that was focused directly on Labeouf's face.
#ALLMYMOVIES is the eleventh piece in a conceptual art series by Labeouf, Rönkkö & Turner. Other pieces in the series include #IAMSORRY, which featured Labeouf sitting in a room in an art gallery in Los Angeles where members of the public could have a one-on-one conference with him over a span of time, and #INTRODUCTIONS, also known as Shia LaBeouf's Intense Motivational Speech / Just Do It, during which the actor starred in a 41-minute video reading different monologues prepared for him by art students at Central St. Martins University in Britain. As of November 13th, it is unclear how many pieces of art are planned in the collaboration.
At noon on November 10th, 2015, a press release was issued by the trio explaining that at that moment, Labeouf had begun the #ALLMYMOVIES project with the unreleased film Man Down. The press release read, simply,
From noon today, #ALLMYMOVIES by LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner will commence at the Angelika Film Center, 18 West Houston Street, NYC.
Visitors are invited to join Shia LaBeouf in person as he watches all his movies consecutively in reverse chronological order over the next three days, 24 hours a day (admission free).
It also included the link to the NewHive page where the live stream was created. (Embedding of the stream is disabled, but the entirety is archived.)
At first, the movie marathon was ridiculed by all but Labeouf's fandom. Gothamist called the performance a "stunt" and the Atlantic called it "narcissism." After several people called the event "Watching Shia with Shia in a roomful of people watching Shia", the term "Shiaception" was coined; On November 12th, the Twitter account @Shiaception was created and proceeded to tweet about the event until it ended, acquiring over 2,000 followers. 
By the end of the event, many critics were praising the work. The Guardian called it "intriguing," and a reporter from Entertainment Weekly described how she regained a sense of LaBeouf's humanity through the piece. While New Hive doesn't make viewing numbers public, according to volume of Tweets, the most popular day to discuss the piece was November 11th, when more than 55,000 people Tweeted about LaBeouf and more than 38,000 used the hashtag #allmymovies.
Many users began taking screenshots of the live stream and using them in tweets and other social media. Some notable moments included when LaBeouf cried during the showing of Even Stevens, moments when he ate popcorn, and moments when he fell asleep.
