Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Known as much for his photography as his videos, Anton Corbijn has produced some of rock's most memorable images. Long associated with Depeche Mode and U2 (that’s his iconic shot on the cover of Joshua Tree), the Dutch director has worked with a diverse array of acts, including Joy Division ("Atmosphere"), Nirvana ("Heart-Shaped Box"), and Metallica ("Hero of the Day").

Read our interview with Anton Corbijn.
This collection captures over 20 years of wit and style, with influences ranging from surrealism, expressionism, and elegant European auteurs like Fritz Lang, Wim Wenders, and Ingmar Bergman (especially The Seventh Seal). Like many of the best video makers, Corbijn takes his cues more from the music and personality of the artists than the lyrics. The striking video for David Sylvian's "Red Guitar," for instance, features the singer, an old man, and a young boy--no red guitars anywhere. That about sums up Corbijn: often slick, occasionally bizarre--always unpredictable. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Introspective Journey October 10, 2006
"I know I would apologize if I could see your eyes

cause when you showed me myself I became someone else

But I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need"

~Joseph Arthur, In The Sun

Anton Corbijn's work has an element of introspection as opposed to visual overwhelm. In this collection you may notice the black-and-white grainy backgrounds with crimson highlights. His work is instantly recognizable and he is famous for photographing a long list of entertainers, including Miles Davis and Michael Stipe. He is known for his unique visions, like the Coldplay "Talk" music video.

This DVD includes "Red Guitar," where we find David Sylvian embracing a rich symbolism through Anton Corbijn's art in motion. You can truly feel the mingling of his mind with the ideas in David Sylvian's song and he captures peaceful images to highlight the beauty of David's voice. He seems to draw on mythology and images that represent the life of the soul.

U2's "Electrical Storm" is featured and there is a behind the scenes look at how the music video was filmed. Lovers fight as tension builds and then there is a breathlessly beautiful scene of kissing in a bathtub set near the ocean and fireworks all over the sky. Bono makes an appearance later talking about his experiences working with Anton Corbijn. I loved the purity of his voice as he sings "One." His voice was so ecstatic in this sepia toned director's cut. The beauty of his voice comes through with a brilliance of clarity like I've never heard it before. Truly stunning and gives you shivers!

Heart-Shaped Box is supremely colorful and the most expensive music video he made due to the time it took to add color to the black-and-white film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Compilation of Anton's Video Work November 7, 2005
I'm sure that he's probably more famous for his photography than most of the video work that he's done; Anton seems to be a lesser known director in the genre. And while some people may talk about guys like Mark Romanek, Spike Jonze, or Mike Mills, Anton deserves his name at the top of the list, too.

Like his photography, Anton has a definite knack for capturing a moment and making it count. Preferring the most basic of color schemes in his videos (vs making them flashy, busy, etc), he's able to emphasize one object, person, or action with a remarkable intensity. Several of the videos featured on this disc, including U2's One, Joy Division's Atmosphere, his work with Depeche Mode, and even Mercury Rev's Goddess on a Highway are genuine works of art. He's had the ability to work with some great acts, even if some of them will be relatively obscure to American audiences.

The extras and interviews are quality, although I would have liked to hear more from Anton himself. Even his shorts are worthwhile watching; they definitely build a bit of excitement about his Ian Curtis biopic in progress.

Anton's work can contain rather dark imagery at times, but there's always some undertone that seems to clash with this theme, a light from darkness. From the red flowers in Nirvana's In Utero to the mixed themes of mourning and celebration, birth and death...if anyone isn't familiar with his work, I highly recommend this compilation -- especially for the fans of his photography.

Anton may be underrated by some, but he's one of my personal favorites in the visual art world and quite possibly one of the most talented.
