Lana Del Ray “Ride”

No one quite does the tortured chanteuse quite like Lana Del Rey. And though I may not be a fan of all her music, this song stopped me in my tracks – an epic production that only music legend Rick Rubin could deliver. The scale of the video and sunburnt grade is beautiful. The landscape is celebrated. You can’t help but mourn this beautiful girl’s tortured choices as she rides off on the back of motorcycles with the most dubious men. This was directed by Anthony Mandler, who’s always had a flair for the over-dramatic but delivers time and again on a cinematic scale. 10 minutes long – this feels like it could be a great film.
