David Knight - 30th May 2018

Zayn's music video persona - diffident, lonesome, absolutely irresistable to girls - may well be the real guy for all I know. It certainly gets a proper burnishing in David Helman's excellent video for Entertainer.

There's the right balance in this Miami-set drama of atmosphere, romance and peril, as Zayn visits the workplace of the girl with whom he's having an affair, who is involved with people that neither of them should be messing with.

Shot on 16mm, there is a gritty and seedy element mixed with the obvious fantasy that makes it a gripping as well as glamourous.
