A long, quirky and risqué music video
11 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I was looking at Beyoncé's profile here on IMDb shortly after watching her intriguing documentary 'Life Is But A Dream,' I was surprised to see this listed in her filmography as well as IMDb referring to it as a short movie. Technically I have always perceived it as a long music video and while quirky and risqué, especially Beyoncé and Lady Gaga killing diner guests by poisoning them, this is one of Gaga's best videos.

Not only did I like this video but I also like the song. The video has a cinematic look throughout, particularly the opening titles leading up to Gaga being thrown in jail (probably a connection to her killing a man towards the end of her 'Paparazzi' video) and it is also colourful for the most part. The outfits worn by Gaga and Beyoncé are bright and bold while GaGa's costumes and hairstyles are as bizarre as always, particularly the cigarettes and Diet Coke cans in her hair and the telephone hat on her head - very fitting for the video and the song. I think IMDb regarded this video as a short film due to its pretty minimal use of dialogue as well as its length.

All in all this is the longest music video I've seen since the one for Gwen Stefani's 'What You Waiting For?' with risqué moments, a plot reminiscent of that for 'Pulp Fiction (despite not seeing that film)' and some quirky yet colourful costumes. 8/10.
