The video begins with an aerial shot of a block in Los Angeles, and clips of radio broadcasts are heard with disc jockeys stating that U2 is planning on performing a concert downtown and expecting crowds of 30,000 people.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Ok, this music video about shooting a music video, (woah, Meta dude!) completely removed the edge (see what I did there?) of yearning for freedom and signlessness achieved by the band and Brian Eno in the studio by giving us an arrogant ass portrait of how big the band is/was/is... I have a love-hate
relationship with U2 (hey, I liked their free iTunes gift album, actually,) and this video is why... Obnoxious...
