A FIGHTING CHANCE

Pitchfork has launched a new column called “Director’s Cut,” in which video directors talk about their latest clips. Their most recent installment features the Australian director Nash Edgerton, whose short film Spider was one of my favorites at Sundance last year and whose music videos I’ve long been a fan of. His latest is for Bob Dylan’s “Beyond Here Lies Nothin,” and it’s characteristically intense and violent, riffing, perhaps, on the infamous motel room scene in True Romance. In the interview, Edgerton says he never met Dylan and got a call offering him the video but he could only listen to the song once over the phone. The clip is embedded below and click on the link above for the interview with Edgerton. (Note: violent content.)
