Maximo Park - Stay - Dir Ramon Bloomberg

We saw Ramon's one take vid for Broadcast on this site and then asked him to do the last Maximo Park video on this album.

Hope you like...

(antville lands director a job - love it!)

great atmosphere, very murnau (same location as carax' recent one for carla bruni?) narrative nicely hermetic and captivating - helped me to ignore the track (while complementing it quite well).

adelante, ramon!

What's this? Leos Carax is directing videos?

I would have enjoyed it more as a short film. It didn't manage to add anything to the music, but rather take away. Cudos to the location scout though.

it appears he co-wrote these songs with her.
here's the other one (flv - save to disk; otherwise dig it out of this annoying flash site.) lovely....

More interesting than the other Maximo Park videos, but lacks cohesion and finesse; some of the direction and editing feels kind of stiff. That said, it shows potential, and it plays on the strengths of the band -- as in, not actually showing them in the video. Damn does that singer's voice still grate on my nerves.

My favorite thing about this video is the still shot above, great coloring.

Unfortunately, I feel this video is a half sentence. When it started, I'm sitting here thinking, hey, great location and texture, this has potential. We're introduced to the main character and I'm intrigued - who is this gritty cat? and why is he limping? After 30 seconds of limping I get antsy, but there's some strong camera work with intriguing shadows, so I refrain from the fast forward. When I see trenchcoats I think hey, something's building. But then all I'm left with is himself staring at himself getting jumped? It feels like a meaningless circular metaphor. Not to mention almost zero editorial relation to the music throughout the piece. In the end, i'm just left wanting.

it feels a bit like a 90s music video for me - the strobe frames & smoke at the start, the epic limping around, it actually felt a bit like a Metallica video.

agree with pops. he is right. very funny. metallica and also prodigy with firestarter. just a litte bit. 90s even.

I love this. By far the best video i've seen on this site in a while.

Nice film. Needs a different soundtrack. I agree that this would flourish as a short film. The video and the song just don't fit.
