Great, but mostly for die-hard fans.
27 January 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The work of Director Spike Jonze includes a collection of music videos, short films, and documentaries filmed by the acclaimed director during the 90's.

His style for music videos is amazingly unique, and are usually a pleasure to watch. But with only 19 of his 50+ videos, casual fans may be steered away.

The special features are lacking, but since the extra short films on the two-sided disc are incredibly rare, it's a must have for longtime fans. With a 52 page book included with Spike's photos and documentary, it's worth the price.

Highlights include Weezer's "Buddy Holly" video, and an assortment of critically acclaimed music videos.

All in all, a must buy, but more towards the big time fan.
