A retired street wise criminal, is leaving his life of crime in hopes of making it big in the music business. When his attempt at stardom fails, he returns to his hometown where his old friends convince him to join them for one more heist.
Below is a list of music videos that I find to be inspiring, noteworthy or otherwise interesting. I really respect artists who take their music videos seriously and get involved in the progress, conceptualize interesting ideas and take advantage of the video medium.
The videos for Mad World, The hardest button to button and Hyperballad were all directed by Michel Gondry. Director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
I recently went to see the Tom Hooper adaptation of Les Miserables and I didn't think much of it. However, in a LinkedIn group that I am a member of, a few of us had some healthy discussion about it. Seeing the disparity of opinions, I thought it might be worthwhile to share what I had with a broader audience. In the conversation, this review came up: http://badassdigest.com/2013/01/09/film-crit-hulk-smash-hulk-vs.-tom-hooper-and-art-of-cinematic-affectation/ I browsed through it and found not much value to come from it. There was also a discussion regarding the limited color palate used.
