Mark Romanek (director of the thriller "One Hour Photo") is one of the best directors of music videos, and one of the most influential as well. In this collection of his works, the viewer is able to appreciate his unique visual style, with a lot of care of the atmosphere and the visual aspect of each short, fitting it quite well with the tone of each song. Music videos like "Closer" from Nine Inch Nails or "Bedtime Stories" from Madonna are enough examples of his talent and care for the details, showing us disturbing, yet beautiful and memorable images, that you could only see in a dream. The influence of his work can be appreciated even feature length films as "The Cell" or "The Fall" which share many thing in common with the fantastic music videos from Mark Romanek. This is a great collection. I highly recommend it.
