Overview

Before directing the award-winning features Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, Spike Jonze made a name for himself by directing some of the most inventive music videos in the history of the format. The centerpiece of this two-sided DVD release is 16 of those clips, including Weezer's "Buddy Holly," which features footage of the band performing on Happy Days; Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice," with an excellent dance performance by Christopher Walken; Björk's "It's Oh So Quiet," an ode to movie musicals of old; and the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage," a note-perfect evocation of '70s cop shows. Commentaries from the music artists can be accessed for almost every one of the videos. Documentaries and short films by Jonze reveal other aspects of his formidable talent. The icing on the gravy is a slick 52-page booklet that contains an extensive interview with Jonze, stills from the videos, and drawings.

Editorial Reviews

Tracks - Terri Sutton
Watching sixteen of his videos in a row, you see the charm of the Jonze aesthetic: clever, if simple, concepts laced with an irony that makes viewers feel smart for getting it.
