MUSIC VIDEOS 28: Radiohead - Knives Out

In 'Knives Out', Michel Gondry interprets Thom Yorke's ambiguous lyric as a nightmarish pantomime of hospitalisation and illness. Like much of Gondry's work, the detail is immense and the whole thing is filmed in a continuous, cunningly choreographed shot. Amazingly, almost everything was shot in-camera. Yorke and the actress ducked through trapdoors in the intricate set to appear on the television. The train window background was a video image fed from a camera on top of the model train. The cameraman swung around on a bungee rope to capture the madness.
