5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece...............No Disappointment Here! December 28, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
As a NIN fan, you will Love and Respect Closure(Halo 12). One reason, Trent Reznor is a very discreet man and he's not very public. You don't get to see much on NIN behind the scenes. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing NIN live, you will love Closure. Video #1 is a documentary of the guys at work on their Self Destruct Tour dated 1994-1998. Most of the footage seems to be 1994-1996. It has great Concert and behind the scenes footage. It does have a lot of flashing lights and it tends to jump around alot, but this is NIN we're talking about. It's nice to see Trent, Robin, Chris, Danny and the other guys doing their jobs. Concert footage includes: Terrible lie, Piggy, Down in it, March of the Pigs, Wish, Hurt w/David Bowie & Something I Can Never Have. Video #2 is of most of NIN's videos...including the banned Happiness in Slavery and the un-cut Down in it and Closer. The other videos included are Head like a Hole, Sin, Pinion, Wish, Help me I'm in Hell, Gave up , March of the Pigs, a triplet live of Eraser/Hurt/Wish and my absolute all time favorite, The Perfect Drug! Closure was well put together! Definitely worth 5 stars!

The first video in this package is a collection of live performances and backstage footage. There's nothing very revealing about frontman Trent Reznor, and the sound and picture quality are, as the disclaimer warns, "compromised", but there are many choice moments, the most obvious one being David Bowie joining the band for Hurt. If you persevere through the poor sound, there is some very funny conversation - David Bowie (again) telling of a 'fan's' mix-up of Bowie and Vanilla Ice is one example.
Part 2 is a collection of all of NIN's music videos up to The Perfect Drug (with the exception of Burn, which, for completists, can be found on the second tape of the Natural Born Killers Director's Cut, and the complete Broken movie - sorry, can't help you there). It opens with a short video of A Warm Place (these instrumental videos are scattered through the collection, along with short film reels of, among other things, an elephant being electrocuted), but the first video proper is Head Like A Hole, a fairly MTV-friendly clip with jump-cuts galore. It's not exactly ground-breaking, but it does the job nicely.
The second video (Sin) is where it starts to get nasty. Those with any sort of moral objection to homosexuals smearing blood over each other should probably hit the fast-forward button. Anyone who is comfortable with explicit nudity, however, should be fine, although the meagre two-minute run time may disappoint you.
Down In It is a return to Head Like A Hole territory (it has the same director) although slightly less MTV-friendly, as it includes a dead Trent Reznor. This is the uncut version.
The next few videos make up most of the tracks (except for Last) from the Broken EP (including the instrumentals).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Double Video Set from NIN March 13, 2001
By dolly_
Format:VHS Tape
Video one shows concert and behind the scenes footage from the Self-Destruct tour. The behind the scenes footage has Trent and the boys bringing down an exit sign by throwing beer bottles at it, Danny Lohner in a thong, Bowie tells about getting confused with Vanilla Ice, Trent trying decide how to deal with Robin's hand injury, Jim Rose Circus among other things. Live performances are of Terrible Lie, Piggy, Down in It, March of the Pigs, the Only Time, Sanctified, Wish, Hurt (featuring Bowie) and Something I Can Never Have.
Video Two is of all of their videos previous to The Fragile besides Burn, the original March of the Pigs video (never released) and the Broken movie (if that counts as being a music video). It has Head Like a Hole, Sin, Down In It, Pinion, Wish, Help Me I'm in Hell, Happiness in Slavery, Gave Up, March of the Pigs, Eraser/Hurt/Wish (live), Closer and the Perfect Drug. Each of their videos is unique and not like any of their other ones. Marilyn Manson is in the video for Gave Up and Richard Patrick of Filter is shown in some of the early videos. Mark Romanek directed the last two videos and in my opinion, they are two of the best videos ever made. Every time I watch them, I catch something new that I hadn't noticed before.
If you are a NIN fan, you NEED to get this.

Format:VHS Tape
My job is in the music business, and unfortunately it can sometimes be a constant reminder that the most modern and popular music is in pretty bad shape. Nine Inch Nails is quite the exception, and I've been a fan of Reznor's work since 1990's "Pretty Hate Machine". Closure is a like a spicy gumbo of eye candy and orchestrated noise enclosed into Nine Inch Nails' time capsule. This video consists of two tapes; one is a live documentary during the Self Destruct tour and the other is the complete, uncut music videos. Shots of the live documentary include Trent getting irritated with a few lighting technicians, live song performances, backstage mischief with an exit sign, and getting dressed for performances. Several guests appearing are Marilyn Manson, The Jim Rose Circus, and David Bowie. The documentary is well edited and truly shows the hectic and ever changing conditions of touring. The only downfall of this video is the sound quality at times is sketchy and sounds very much like a bootleg. Hypnotic, compelling, and often disturbing, Trent delivers with all the music videos in chronological order and unedited on the second tape. Both unreleased, "Sin" and "Happiness In Slavery" are included in the line up. Throughout the videos, you are able to see the evolution of NIN and its gorgeous visual depictions of songs like "Wish", "Down In It", and several live performances. "Closer" replaces the pattern of "scene missing" signs on tv with nudity, Trent in bondage, and S & M overtones (which I might add could very well worth every penny). At the close of the videos is "The Perfect Drug". Directed by Mark Romanek, it's my personal favorite of all the videos. Read more ›
