music video auteurs: Hal Hartley

Despite nary a mention in keef's recent feature director playlists, Hal Hartley was one of the more interesting video auteurs. Here are three instances of his Ĺ“uvre:

Everything But The Girl - The only living boy in New York

Beth Orton - Stolen Car

Yo La Tengo - From a Motel 6


As the label notes, this video was deemed unsatisfactory and replaced by David Kleiler's reshoot.

(Incidentally, these last two videos are a perfect starting point for a fascinating dive into 90's music videos as seen through the lens of cable mv show My Part Of The Thing - but that's another story...)

Thank you for posting From a motel 6. Yo la Tengo are the coolest band ever and I think this typifies why beautifully, they don't have to act cool their music does it for them. It's such a brilliantly subtle two fingers up at the industry, completely anti-charismatic. What the hell did the label replace it for?
