David Knight - 2nd Dec 2011

Ryan Hope's video for Bombay Bicycle Club's Leave It manages to span the rollercoaster of human life, from birth to death and everything in between, in what looks like a single rotating shot.

A set of chairs in a working men's club, arranged in a circle, are occupied first by the band, and then a succession of ordinary folk going through a progression of everyday struggles. And as with Ryan's new documentary Skin, it's a change-up from his pop/fashion-orientated work to something more serious, handled with aplomb.
