Imagine Dragons 'Next To Me' by Mark Pellington
Mark Pellington demonstrates just why he is regarded as a music video directing legend, with his remarkable 11 minute 'music film' for Imagine Dragons' Next To Me.
This is an intimate story of a relationship on a grand and tragic scale, which Pellington has told with a bravura brilliance that recalls the experimental style that he pioneered in his videos in the Nineties, and then brings it bang up to date.
Imagine Dragons' frontman Dan Reynold's highly flawed character is framed in the first minute by a searing speech of condemnation by Aja Volkman, Reynold's wife in the film and in real life. What follows incorporates a terrible crime, delivered in dramatic detail, but also becomes a stupendous fever dream, as we start to believe in Reynold's character's rehabilitation and release. Only to realise this is not how things pan out...
Next To Me is a story of love, loss, mistakes, regrets, and redemption, and an inspiring example of a brilliant director being given the scope to practice his craft.
