David Knight - 23rd Jan 2012

Life, death and the cosmos... only the big stuff in the mesmerising video for Justice's On 'N' On by Alex Courtes - his big return to directing videos since completing his first feature The Incident - and his first music video through Division.

Alex explores the theme of Vanitas, applied to the realm of rock 'n roll, with an epic vision, and the relentless forward motion of his (& Martin's) Seven Nation Army. Wonderfully shot, and the FX work, by Mathematic in Paris, is superb.
