Overview

Michel Gondry has carved out a career as one of the most distinctive music video directors of his generation. His unique collaborations with diverse artists like Björk, the Chemical Brothers, and the White Stripes have been collected on this double-sided DVD release. Over two-dozen videos are presented, each in their original broadcast aspect ratios. In addition to famous works like "Everlong," the Lego-inspired "Fell In Love With a Girl," and the visually inventive "Let Forever Be," the disc contains a 75-minute documentary consisting of interviews with Gondry and testimonials from the people with whom he has worked. A selection of his commercials, short films (including one starring Jim Carrey), and other random visual images captured by the artist round out this impressive package from Palm and Director's Label. Companion releases featuring the work of Spike Jonze and Chris Cunningham are also available.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
In an era where MTV barely plays them, music videos have become a maligned art form, and most promo clips today are barely indistinguishable from the commercials around them. That can't be said about Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry, probably the best video wizard working today. For evidence, look no further than this collection of his most amazing clips. He turned the White Stripes into LEGO blocks for "Fell in Love with a Girl" and cloned Kylie Minogue in the mind-numbingly complex "Come into My World"; and the innovations he pioneered for the Rolling Stones' "Like a Rolling Stone" video helped birth the celebrated "bullet-time" effects in The Matrix. Also included are all six videos he's made for Björk, the most intriguing of which is "Bachelorette," playing like the video equivalent of a Russian nesting doll. Gondry's work is so creative, so captivating, you'll find yourself watching videos for songs or artists you don't even like.
Tracks - Terri Sutton
Gondry is the Leonardo da Vinci of music video, uniting creative and technical invention.
