THE NATIONAL - "Apartment Story" (dir. Banner Gwin)
The National's "Apartment Story" from Boxer. Directed by Banner Gwin.
nice looking film.... not really much of a clever concept; but well done, i guess. I think the premise is a takeoff of the album cover; which was a snapshot from a wedding the band played at. Great song, too.
i think this is absolutely beautiful. sometimes a clever concept just isn't necessary, and this has got such a great tone to it. great work banner.
very cinematic, lovely.
I couldn't agree more: fuck the concept bullshit. Beautiful video and i love the misterious presence of the unfaced red shoes woman that comes to rock the ambience. The best thing i've seen this year.
Add me to the fuck the concept group :) Looks gorgeous. Sometimes a mood is more than enough. Not to mention there is a concept its just not over the top, overt or in your face which is exactly what I enjoyed about this one. Great cinematography.
Really enjoyed that. Moving even. A good compliment to a great song. It's so valuable when a video represents a song well. When a band creates a song and visuals are put to it, they can become synonymous...and sometimes that's a horrible thing, here it's perfect.
