Luke Bather - 26th June 2017

It's two tales as different as day and night in Colin Read's gripping video for Radiohead's Man of War.

A camera sweeps through a park on a Steadicam, cutting abruptly but seamlessly between identical shots in day and night. Before long we're introduced to our lead character whose daytime movements begin decidedly more relaxed than his night time parallel. Every action has an equal or opposite reaction and the paranoid, fidgety sense of impending trouble blurs the lines between the day and night actions before they seemingly become one and the same. A simple and sinister story structured superbly in the edit.
