Gondry’s Music Video PicksJuly 1, 2008
While not everybody likes Gondry’s style- have a look here for his 25 favourite music videos (not the ones he has done himself obviously!). I do quite like most of his work so I think it is rather interesting to have a glimpse into his head- there is a little blurb along with each of the picks that explains why he thinks it has artistic merit.
No surprise with some like Gabriel’s Sledgehammer, Bjork’s It’s Oh So Quiet..and a few others that Spike Jonze has done. There are some surprises there though and quite a diverse range of artists- Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie boys, Talking Heads, Aerosmith, Paul Simon, Aphex Twin, and Devendra Banhart. It’s not often that you would see those artists all in one list but I suppose this is Gondry after all!
