The Mountain Goats "This Year" - Dir. Andy Bruntel
weird take on the performance thing;
nice narrative details early on.
I liked the beginning and that part that's in the screenshot, but I think it would have been better if he wasn't so into the performance. He should have been frightened or something, I guess. Might have been kind of tiring if it was for the whole video though. Oh well? Good idea anyway.
yeah totally. a good idea, but they REALLY didn't do enough with it.
the look he gives the guy with the drink is almost worth sitting through the whole thing though. man.
i really wish they had done more with this idea - more going through the motions of a kidnapping as they play the song, taking the bands picture with today's newspaper, fun crafts project cutting out letters from magazines for the randsome note, cutting off one of the drummer's fingers to prove they're serious - it could have been a great video for my time capsule.
Good stuff, fingers.
