Original subject matter for such a video
7 December 2000 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

What initially is a collection of music videos for the Jane's Addiction album "Ritual de lo Habitual" becomes a heart-wrenching story of accidents, mourning, and the bonds of love. The film revolves around Perry and Casey. While Perry is recording with the band, Casey goes out to get a little "treat" of heroin. Unfortunately, what she has is a bad batch and she finds this out much too late. When Perry comes home to discover her, he goes into shock, wondering what to do next and who to call. As he wonders about the house, he begins to think back about their life together, from their Santerian wedding to a bizarre drug-rehab center. The music from the album fits in well with the action and the acting is better than one would expect from rock stars. The subject matter for a video as such is very original and well thought-out. But it also raises some disturbing questions: what WOULD you do if you came home to your loved-one in such a fashion? Who would you call first? Will the blame be placed on you? How will this affect you and your actions? The answers to these questions unfold in beautiful visuals and excellent examples of early-90's alternative music with an ending that will shock you.
