Wong Kar Wai strikes again May 8, 2007

Posted by mmonla in Art and Design.

All right I admit it, it’s a bit outdated. But if you haven’t seen it yet, the video clip done by Wong Kar Wai for DJ Shadow’s ‘Six Days’ is worth checking out. Good song too. The bold colour palette and the frequent use of strong contrasts is absolutely amazing. I especially like the closing scene with the actor sitting alone in front of the green wall. And let’s not forget the flickering light; it’s all about the flickering light. In short, it’s beautifully shot and composed… Am I the only one mesmerized every time I see it?

For all you Mos Def fans out there, there’s a remix of the song using the same video clip. You can find it easily on youtube but I feel the video is a lot less powerful in that version. Maybe I underestimated how much the strength of the clip relied on the actual song…
