user picture Martin: Love this list! And, wow, I never knew David Fincher directed Vogue! I'd include several of Madonna's 80s videos (Open Your Heart, Express Yourself, Crazy For You, Live To Tell - I love music videos spliced with film scenes), a whole smattering of Bjork (thank you, Michel Gondry), and Massive Attack's Unfinished Sympathy :) apr 28 2008
user picture Cla: Nice list! Pagaya, ha (if I remember to come up with one, haha). One of my favorite videos is Writing to Reach You by Travis! I love the North by Northwest reference. I also like Fiona Apple's Criminal :) oct 5 2008
