...and we love culture, don't we?
This was an odd video. Not just Kanye himself but the Jonze's use of Kanye. Spike Jonze, the director of Where the Wild Things Are & Being John Malcovich, likes to bring a surreal effect to his films. Jonze portrays Kanye as a drunk narcissist(one could even say douche bag)who you don't feel sorry for. I mean this portrayal of Kanye is what we expect (i.e. Taylor Swift incident) except until the end. I guess i'm just left with more questions than when I started but I enjoyed the video overall.
Wow. I found this to be incredible. absolutely incredible. Hats off to Jonze again. This piece has a lot of daring originality in my opinion, and makes brilliant use of Kanye's pop icon status. Jonze has always had a vision. This is no exception, and I think it adds to his repertoire of already brilliant stuff. It was a sad movie too. I did feel for Kanye, or the character of Kanye throughout...with the exception maybe of the first few minutes, but I was so curious at that point it didn't really matter if I liked or disliked his persona at the start off (and that gave him a chance to be transformed anyway, as all the best characters/people are). Thanks for posting this good stuff.
Yeah. That got weird fast. But not weird in a bad way at all. I actually felt sympathetic towards Kanye almost the whole time. Even when was being a belligerent douche I felt like that was just the Hen talking... somehow like his stardom and access to fine booze wasn't his fault. I thought the camera work ie. helping the viewer feel Kanye's drunkenness was really effective as well as the visual and sound effects during the vomit/stabbing scene.
I would say that this is definitely sliding down the surface of things. unexpectedly moving
