Childish Gambino 'This Is America' by Hiro Murai
Donald Glover returns as Childish Gambino with This Is America, and a new video by long-time collaborator and comrade Hiro Murai - a scathing satire on the state of the nation.
With everything to Glover's 'Jim Crow' pose to the appearance of a Horseman of the Apocalypse being analysed and deconstructed all over the internet, the details are there to be debated and discussed. But the themes of violence, gun reverence, chaos and fear - and the fact that this comes from a black man's perspective - are plain as day. Draw your own conclusions.
With it's anarchic, cartoonish action, set in a gigantic hangar, this is a stretch from the uber-cool urban-set videos by Glover and Murai when Childish Gambino was just starting out, and before they started making Atlanta, their Golden Globe-winning TV show.
But at the same time this seems in keeping with what has gone before. Glover is a virtuoso performer, who can be different things at different moments. And this is a seriously absurd comedy for serious times.
