Björk “It’s Oh So Quiet” Dir. Spike Jonze

So here’s Björk’s magnificent video that makes Feist’s pale in comparison. I now see that is in large part because Spike Jonze directed Björk’s, and Patrick Daughters directed Feist’s. I would like to highlight the massively more filmic treatment of this. The anthropomorphed mailbox and other whimsical elements picked up in passing with Daughters’ toast in Mushaboom. Plus there’s a real mood change whenever the exuberant chorus ends–slowing of movement and Björk deflates…Enjoy!
