Pretty much all the videos (even if there's only a few here) are spectacular. The Karma Police and Street Spirit videos rival Michel Gooooondry for the king of Radiohead directors. The multiple speeds of the subjects in Street Spirit confused me, really confused me, when I first saw the video on MTV, and I still didn't know how he did it until it was explained here. His famous Jamiroquai video is always fun to watch again, and although the floor trick isn't nearly as cool after the first few viewings, you have to admit that it's original. Oh, and I definitely can't leave out the video for "Rabbit in the Headlights," one of my favorites, straight genius.
Although you get gypped with the number of videos, it almost evens out with the film clips, extras, and commercials included here. Glazer has pretty much proven his talents in all three areas, so getting a chance to watch his clever Guinness Commercials or his hilarious dark comedy Sexy Beast is a nice treat (I hope everyone has seen this movie by now). I still haven't seen Birth, though, so I've prevented myself from watching the excerpts here.
The only thing this disc lacks is quality commentary, especially in the music video section. I almost never trade the music for the commentaries, and the extras are pretty weak, too. However, this is a solid introduction to a very unique and talented director, and definitely worth having in your collection.
I give it five stars because of the complexity each video has in capturing the right mood of the song, which is why you'll find Radiohead, Massive Attack, U.N.K.L.E., and the simply fantastic Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity video. I love the Director's Label series with the booklets that have notes about each of the videos by the director. Michel Gondry's is particularly great. Out of the Label series this is my favorite director, followed by a tie between Michel Gondry, Spike Jonez, and Chris Cunningham. I feel all four of these directors are equally creative and ingenious that really emphasize the high points of the artists they film with. If you came over to my party and if I didn't have Underworld's Everything Everything Live playing, this would be on. Buy it, says my 2 year old son :)
I bought this initially so I could replace my australian version, cant do that.
