Editorial Reviews

According to Bono, "He’s much cooler than anyone in his videos." That’s high praise indeed as French filmmaker/photographer Stéphane Sednaoui has conjured up many of music’s hippest clips. Glitter, mirror balls, metallic paint--if it glows, shines, or sparkles, you can bet he's incorporated it into one of his projects.

Read our interview with Stéphane Sednaoui.
Sednaoui's background in fashion permeates every production, so it's no wonder he's worked with such stylish performers as Bjork and Garbage's Shirley Manson. (Like Anton Corbijn, celebrity portraiture is also part of his purview.) Fortunately, his are more than pretty pictures, but concentrated capsules of mood, as in his melancholy meditations for Massive Attack ("Sly") and Tricky ("Pumpkin"), and movement, as in his ecstatic explorations for the Red Hot Chili Peppers ("Give It Away"), U2 ("Mysterious Ways"), and Bjork ("Big Time Sensuality"). And yes, trivia buffs, that's Sofia Coppola in the bad trip video for the Black Crowes' "Sometimes Salvation." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars It's New to Me, but I Like It November 7, 2005
I'll start by saying that I wasn't incredibly familiar with Stephane Sednaoui before the release of this DVD. To be blunt, I had no idea who he was, and a good portion of his videos were foreign to me (well, they're French). I'm pretty glad that I got a chance to see some of his material, however. Sednaoui is also a fashion photographer, and it shows in his music video work: lots of color, brilliance, and energy are common in his work. He's almost an opposite of Anton Corbijn in this respect, who tends to choose darker, matte-like subjects over flashy, shiny and colorful ones, but I still grew to appreciate his ability. Plus, I've heard he's quite a ladies man.

To start with the videos, I'm definitely partial to the work he's done with Bjork, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Mirwais (I had never heard of this group until I watched the DVD, by the way) because I think their music fits Sednaoui's style. In fact, his videos seem to fit like a glove over the funky rhythms of Give It Away or Bjork's quirky Big Time Sensuality. There are some cases, one being his work with Tricky, which prove his versatility to some extent.

Another example of his talents in visual art comes from the brilliant short films on this disc...I'm actually curious if he's done more work in this area, because I loved these. Walk on the Wild Side, which Sednaoui describes as a faithful interpretation of Lou Reed's song/poem, describes the lives of 5 teenagers moving to New York in search of glory and excitement. Another one, Army of Me, is an animated short that originally started as a video project for Bjork's song with the same name. Both are just cool, visually stunning, and just another side of Stephane's talents.

I think I'd be more critical of this guy if I knew more about him, maybe.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, but... November 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One would hope for more than just a compilation of music videos and a few stray bits of material. The Palm Director Series started off with a bang (see the excellent, truly excellent Michel Gondry Director's Series DVD), and has degenerated into formula...throw down a bunch of music videos, go get a few musician soundbites, take the customer's money. No real insight here into Sednaoui, but then again, maybe there's nothing to see.
