FILM / MUSIC VIDEO
Defines the beginning of the 21st century.
Spike’s magnum opus: written, produced, directed, and starring alongside a stellar cast. It’s a masterpiece.
Fiction and fantasy, brutally balanced.
“Complete, self-contained and final. All the critic can bring to it is his admiration. It needs no insight or explanation. It sees everything and explains all. It is as assured and flawless a telling of sadness and joy as I have ever seen.” — Roger Ebert
I was a young boy when I first saw this video. Then I got older. Incredible.
Tyler T Williams directs, shoots, and cuts. This film represents a special time on Vimeo. It’s a beautiful film.
Magical. Cantona is incredible.
Cianfrance puts you in the team.
Ahead of its time. It’s hard to believe that this was made 23 years ago. Rooney’s sequence is legendary.
