Bob Dylan "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" dir. Nash Edgerton
are others on mac&firefox having issues with tdb's wiredrive thingy? works in safari, but ff just remains blank...
progosl, its on shots too, watch it there
oh, here it is.
erm... can i unsee that, please?
Nash is as safe for your work as it gets. "Girl + Boy + car ÷ by Stunt coordinated action, hmmm sounds familiar Nash but you are repped by TDB, get us a budget and lets get handheld shooting!"
Awful, boring, repetitive shlock.
This was really stupid ...
The video was well edited, well shot, well conceived, and well directed. I actually really enjoyed it until the ending. I'm not sure if that is what's throwing people off and coloring their view of the whole thing but, for me, the ending ruined what would otherwise have been a great video.
Jesus Christ guys... take some happy pills. This is fucking awesome. Loved the ending.
It really isn't 'fucking awesome' and it isn't because the ending is juvenile. I had the same problem with the otherwise brilliant Matt and Kim video. What's up with these otherwise intelligent and daring directors deciding to pander at the last minute?
ok the ending kiss is really wrong. But this is an impressively tight direction. Some kids on this site should take a break from posting on blogs, look properly at their own "films", learn from guys like Nash and get to work.
Wrong? How can the kiss be wrong? How old are u guys? All over sixty? Geez
okay, "stupid" maybe wasn't the most constructive way of putting it... So here's another try: for me the video threw it's characters (and any founding in reality) completely out of the window with that ending and effectively reduced itself into a retarded little movieworld fantasy. abuse is a pretty heavy subject to be throwing around just like that. Also the styling and the way the female lead was shot is rather fake and tasteless, the whole "make her look really dirty and beat up, but still like.. um really hot and sexy" thing. Also, I love Bob Dylan and he deserves so much better than this baloney.
After all, may be attacking real directors work on blogs will make you exist more in the film industry than those student "films". www.igorzimmermann.com ???
Enough with the Ad Hominem attacks. We're all intelligent enough to realize that you don't have to be active in a creative industry to critique the work that comes out of that industry.
"retarded little movieworld fantasy" yep that's Nash to a tee. Well said Igor, I get icky feelings from the sexualising of violence in this as well, this video is dogey ethically as well as being predictable and boring.
Learn from Nash?...
...what and be a one trick pony?
I just think that there is so much to like about this as a film that focusing on the negatives is a little bizarre.
igor 33- is this really about domestic abuse though? the female gives as good as she gets and it's obvious at the end that she is complicit in this fetish/fantasy.
Kalstark- thanks for letting me know that it is not 'fucking awesome'. god I hate being wrong!
