A double-sided DVD with a selection of works by director Spike Jonze. There is a good selection of musical video clips, some of them with comments by the group or actors involved, a section on rarities with some short films, and three documentaries.
The Video-clip section contains a good selection of his musical clips, which showcase Jonze's versatility, inventive, innovation, and savoir faire, from hip hop to 50s-like music. The best clips in the section are What's Up Fatlip? by Fatlip, Oh so quiet by Bjork, Weapon of Choice by Fatboy Slim, and above all Buddy Holly by Weezer and the masterpiece Sky is the Limit by Notorious BIG.
The section on rarities is OK, with a lovely short called "How they get there". I did not find the documentaries that interesting. They looked like home made. One of them is a mockumentary about his alter Ego, the choreographer Richard Koufey.
None of his commercials are in the CD, which is a big disappointment.
The DVD does not have anything about Spike Jonze himself. No biographical data, or he talking about his work, his ideas, or anything. Another disappointment. Thank God for the Wikipedia
