A Gondry Compendium
June 27, 2009 — 1:43 pm

Someone over at Metafilter.com has composed a rather long list of music videos directed by Michel Gondry.

Some of the music may not be to your liking, but the video work is striking. If I ever do get a nice video camera and start working in that medium, Gondry, as well as the extremely talented Terrence Malick will certainly serve as an inspiration.

Here’s the original trailer for Malick’s Days of Heaven, made in 1979:

The narrative is a bit schlocky, but I’m telling you, this is one of the most visually resplendent movies ever made.

  1. I agree. I was blown away, the first time I saw it. It remains in my Top Five Movies list, along with The General, Casablanca, North by Northwest and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  2. What’s wrong with the narrative?

  3. The narrative of the trailer, not the movie.
