VIDEO - Seijun Suzuki Music Videos

I don't normaly like music videos made from movie clips, but the people over at The Fantastic Ordinary frankensteined togther Seijun Suzuki's 1977 film Story of Grief and Sorrow with a moody tune from Agoria – Heart Beating (Featuring Kid A) into a transfixing piece of art unto itself.

I personally think this video is better then the movie itself.  You should also check out their other Suzuki music video which stitches together Braned to Kill and a remix of Feist.

Suzuki's images really lend themselves for use in music videos, I just wish more people would reappropiate these classic shots in original material like Jim Jarmush did in Ghost Dog.
