Jonathan Demme and crew create an unusual promo video for New Order’s 1985 single, eschewing the recorded version for a carefully composed/edited, live-sound run-through of the song shot in the band’s practice space.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Thank you so much to whomever submitted this one to the database! Even considering a few film titles I quite like, nothing come closer to these videos he directed for New Order one of my all-time favorite bands. I loved how he used real tight shots of Hook, Gilbert, Sumner and Morris (Medium-shots, Close-ups etc) and then worked his way to wider shots by the end of the song. Loved the Joy Division poster as well. </3
