The Rolling Stones 'Ride ‘Em On Down' by Francois Rousselet
The Rolling Stones make a triumphant return to the world of music video with the help of Francois Rousselet in the high-octane Ride 'Em On Down.
Starring Kristen Stewart as a lone driver on the beautiful, golden, yet eerily deserted streets of LA, she joyrides a Ford Mustang through a world that seems idyllic at first, until it presents us with bizarre hints that all is not as it seems. Is Stewart joyriding through a post-apocalyptic wasteland? Well that's up to you to figure out.
The whole video was shot on 35mm by Newton Thomas Sigel, ASC. Famed for his work on films like Drive, which certainly came in useful here - creating a golden cinematic landscape with bursts of contrasting blue tearing through the scenery.
