bangin tune from mia, decent effort from gavras (he looks more at ease shooting proper pop vids than 'provocative' stuff), kudos to iconoclast

vid looks very very nice but then again smth very dishonest about it

Loved this video. The mood and style of the visuals easily keep up with the banging music. Romain Gavras' imagery, wether provocative or not, always has a great esthetic value to it. Very kind to the eyes.

progosk, February 4, 2012 1:01:36 AM CET

fun, but coulda gone crazier.


         
lloyds_secret_party, February 4, 2012 1:31:44 AM CET

really? i appreciated it didnt dip too far into the surreal. in any other hands it would have been cheese ball. and the sound design, i could go on and on... it was shot in morocco, btw.


         
kalstark, February 4, 2012 3:04:49 AM CET

That was incredible and to think I had all but lost hope in music videos. The cinematography, direction, casting, epic stunts, envelope-pushing theme, and the spot-on editing. Wow. Blows my mind. If nothing else, Gavras has world-building and atmosphere down to a cinematographic science.

Kudos and thank you.


         
daniels, February 4, 2012 8:02:52 AM CET

OMFG!!!


         
draht, February 4, 2012 11:37:40 AM CET

Great. I wish the edit wasn't this quick, the pictures are so interesting it feels like every cut is taking away from me.

Much better than Born Free.


         
my name is legion, February 4, 2012 3:45:12 PM CET

have been watching this all day


         
sharpiesharpesharpe, February 4, 2012 6:29:25 PM CET

this was shot in arizona? wow, could have fooled me.

think three kings was shot there? maybe some old buildings from that film no?


         
lloyds_secret_party, February 4, 2012 6:44:26 PM CET

it was shot in morocco.


         
lusk81, February 4, 2012 7:48:58 PM CET

this is fuckin ace.


         
milan, February 5, 2012 2:47:51 AM CET

i like it the more i watch it.
feels surprisingly fresh, although the edit it sometimes off.
she looks beautiful, too.


         
gregsinora, February 5, 2012 5:44:04 PM CET

100%


         
Whocares, February 5, 2012 10:51:49 PM CET

What i like with Gavras :
1) - his obsession to depict unusual/uncommon/underexposed faces
2) - his raw energy
3) - his parsimoniously humor

Hats off, Monsieur Gavras!

and MIA is at her best, beautiful with effortlessly cool.


         
daniels, February 6, 2012 12:49:58 AM CET

»feels surprisingly fresh, although the edit it sometimes off.«
no, that edit is so SPOT ON!


         
choppedtoms, February 6, 2012 2:37:30 AM CET

yes i agree spot on edit - coulda been so try hard. it has soul...


         
igor33, February 6, 2012 3:00:14 PM CET

amazing beyond words on so many levels, brilliant guts & skills :)


         
lashtape, February 7, 2012 3:03:36 AM CET

Well we know where Romain got the idea from. Not taking anything away from his brilliance. Just interesting to find the source I suppose. Going to be hard to top this vid this year.

Alanedit, February 7, 2012 5:01:50 AM CET

Shot and edited to perfection. There's one bad shot. But it don't matter. Props, Romaine Lettuce. I didn't find this quick.


         
pancho, February 7, 2012 8:20:10 AM CET

@lashtape, I thought this crazy arab street stunt driving culture was pretty well known.. (maybe I spend too much time on the internet).. It's a solid Gavras video using many of the elements he already explored before, car culture, screaming crowds, etc... It's not a paradigm shifting and mind blowing video, but no one can deny that it's flawlessly executed and has lots of replay value. (switch the soundtrack to jay-z and 99 problems, then u got a classic haha)


         
my name is legion, February 7, 2012 10:16:04 AM CET

arab drifting is quite well known on the internets ( www.youtube.com ) but, in this case, it doesnt take anything away from the mv. it actually shows its well researched


         
kalstark, February 7, 2012 8:41:12 PM CET

@Alanedit, what shot don't you like. Just curious :)


         
donlee, February 9, 2012 9:20:48 AM CET

Anyone know who cut this? Did Gavras do it himself?


         
Alanedit, February 9, 2012 12:30:57 PM CET

Walter Mauriot.

@Kalstark there's a shot towards the end bridge where the perf is a little off, and MIA was obscured by lens flares. It threw me off, otherwise perfect edit. ✓

Let me redress that, impressive stuff.
