Maybe someone should put him out or hold the bus...
4 November 2004 | by (Hell's Kitchen, NYC) – See all my reviews

This is one of three DVDs (currently) which show various works (usually music videos, commercials and/or shorts) by the director, Spike Jonez. The other two showcase directors Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham.

As compared to the other two directors, Spike Jones is rooted more in the everyday. The imagery is not psychedelic nor is it surreal. His vision seems to be based more on technique.

Many will remember Spike Jonez as the director of Adaptation and Being John Malkovich. He has also collaborated on many videos with artists such as the Beastie Boys, Chemical Brothers and Tenacious D.

There are some good videos. Here are my favorites :

1) Wax - California. Man on fire running after a bus.

2) Pharcyde - Drop. Video occurs backwards-forward.

3) Daft Punk - Da Punk. Dog head walking the streets of NYC.

Of course everyone will remember his video for Fatboy Slim's Praise You, in which he is participating. He leads this dance troupe in their artistic interpretational dance of the song.

This is definitely a worthwhile pick although I did not like it as much as the other two in the series.
