Cat Velez - 27th Mar 2015

Emil Nava has delivered this Youtube Music Award video for Ed Sheeran & Rudimental's track Bloodstream, exploring the psychology of a wealthy, disgruntled ex-rock star who's dissatisfaction with the emptiness of his middle-age life - in contrast to the success and happiness of his glory days - has reached a breaking point.

In this respect, the casting of Ray Liotta is an inspired move. He transmits the growing crisis of a complex character driven to the brink by blotting out his loneliness with booze, girls, more booze - and riding his horse indoors.

If Ray hasn't played this sort of role in a movie, perhaps somebody should write it for him...
