Markus Lundqvist's sombre and intense promo for Interpol's My Desire takes us into the increasingly tormented and drunken haze of a man – played by Frank Grillo, from the movie Warrior – while propping up the bar, with Interpol as the house band. 

With its neo-noir visuals and creative post elements, the character's hallucinations lend well to the introspective mood of the piece.

And director Markus Lundqvist, previously an award-winning Flame op with The Mill NYC, has now joined Knucklehead for music videos, commercials and content. Executive producer Mary Calderwood says, “My Desire demonstrates Markus’ stylistic flair and marks him out as a visually distinctive storyteller. We are very excited about his potential for future films with Knucklehead.”
