The 2012 music video "Cut the World" by Antony and the Johnsons was directed by Nabil Elderkin. You may have seen some of his work for hip hop artist Frank Ocean. Here, he actually has a pretty prominent cast: actors Willem Dafoe, Carice van Houten and artist Marina Abramovic.
Even if I clearly felt there was something artistic about it, I just cannot say this was a truly great effort here. The song is solid, but fairly repetitive and the two very talented actors are a bit wasted. Abramovic really adds nothing either. Her role here could have been done by any non-actor. The throat-cutting scene really only feels to me included for shock purpose and the tear hitting his eye does not really reach me on an emotional level. Initially, I thought Dafoe is going to do something to himself or his assistant, but that is just his aura I guess. Anyway, this video could have been so much more, really lots of potential here and for that I am slightly disappointed with the result.
