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.

    unbelievable work

    michel gondry is absolutely incredible. the music videos he chooses range widely from pop (kylie minogue) to rock (white stripes) to techno, but he puts his own truly unique and GENIUS touch on every project he helms. plus, there are interesting insights to 'eternal sunshine', his inspirations, and his relationships with the artists he works with. i've never been quite as amazed with visual art as i have been by the collection here.

    Unbelievable inspiration

    Gondry's life as depicted is amazing. He has some of the most magical and amazing things he states. I believe if you are a filmmaker, videomaker, anything in production, you must see this.
