5.0 out of 5 stars Come on my selector!, 21 Jan. 2004
This review is from: The Work Of Director Chris Cunningham [DVD] (DVD)
This is some messed up video. I never imagined that there was a mind that could possibly be this warped, but then again, check the liner notes. The guy was chased through the woods by a nine year old with a hammer.
I haven't seen the Spike Jonze DVD, but I do own Michel Gondry's effort, and it is safe to assume that this is the best of the three. Unlike Michel Gondry's work, which are cool, these videos seem much more like landmarks, defining moments in video history, instead of the kind of pleasant diversions you get from Atomic Kitten.
The reason that I like this DVD so much is that it has been whittled down to a select few. Even the weaker videos have an industrial cool to them, and the best, particularly the Aphek Twin and Bjork promos, are awe inspiring. This DVD is filled with, 'Why didn't I think of that?' moments and I love the way that some videos go for a funky vibe, dancing in time with the music etc, whereas others are controversial in their disregard for the safe options.
And finally, where else are you gonna see this stuff? Nowhere! Unless you want to stay up until 1 on a Sunday morning.
