#48) I think videos in this style all started with REM’s “Losing My Religion” directed by Tarsem, and then bands like Metallica, and the previously mentioned Alice in Chains followed that look. (The look being classical-styled paintings, usually with a biblical influence that are brought to life) Zombie, is my favorite video done in that style. Sam Bayer, doesn’t just stick with the beautiful set-up with Dolores O’Riordan painted in gold and stuck on a cross, but he also cuts to a dirty and war-beaten Ireland. The black & white is very powerful and furthers the statements and protests of the song itself.
