Oasis’s Falling Down by WIZ
The collaboration between Oasis and WIZ has had its ups and downs lately. So thank the Lord the video for Falling Down has now successfully emerged unscathed. Because it's a genuine, proper WIZ music film.
Not surprisingly considering the subject matter its attracting a lot of attention: the sex-and-drugs shenanigans of a royal family member among the 'lower orders' - a contemporary Princess Margaret if you like - who joins the actual Windsor clan on the balcony at Buck House at the end.
Hats off to New York Magazine's Vulture blog which hails the Falling Down video as a throwback to the ambitious sweep of the 'golden age' of videos, and says "like all great music videos, it successfully draws a conceptual outline while leaving the viewer to paint his or her own conclusions."
Which is to say: it's sensual, it's psychological, it's political. And it's goddamn great music video-making. No-one does it quite like WIZ.

Heat and lust, rebellion and romance, as WIZ bestows some intense film magic on a very catchy song, with the help of a typically crack team.
A heady monochrome tale of romance set against a misty London backdrop, with a dark twist in the tale.
London-based director Luis Hindman has done an impressive job here for Ferreck Dawn & Robosonic's club banger In My Arms.
