I admit, I'm a huge fan of Kate Bush and that this may come over as somewhat biased, but hey! Them's the breaks.
Cloudbusting, which is based on Christopher Reichs "Books of Dreams" (memoirs of his life with his Father Wilhelm, yes THAT Wilhelm), is a strangely affecting video and puts Reich into the almost surreal position of being "sympathetic hero".
Featuring Donald Sutherland as Wilhelm and Kate Bush as Christopher, I have to say that I honestly think this is one of Sutherlands greatest performances; beautifully understated and fantastically uplifting.
The Cloudbuster itself is a wonderful piece of cartoon Gothic machinery which you can almost beleive does what it should.....
One of the few music videos that can reduce me to tears.......
