Closure: Tape 2
24 January 1999 | by TMBeJSee all my reviews

"Closure," an extensive video compilation released in November 1997 by Nine Inch Nails, contained two tapes. The first tape follows the infamous group around on a 1994-96 tour. The second tape contains all Nine Inch Nails videos ever produced, except for one particular video, for the song from the Oliver Stone movie, "Natural Born Killers." (The name of this song is called "Burn.")

The video segments are sometimes too disturbing and uncomfortable to watch (the videos for "Sin," and "Happiness In Slavery" come to mind.) The rest of the videos, as bizarre as they may be, are slyly connected by the director by interesting, if not partially disturbing segments.

At its best, tape two of "Closure," seems to have been produced without any compromising of aesthetic goals. At its worst, "Closure" proves to be too sickening to be enjoyed. Keep the remote control handy, because you'll want to fast forward through a few of the clips. Some "watchable" videos include "Head Like a Hole," "Down In It," "Wish," "Eraser/Hurt/Wish (Live)," "March of the Pigs," and "The Perfect Drug."

Even if you can stomach extremely disturbing stuff, this one might cause a second or two of crawling skin. Enjoy, NINnies.
