Interesting that with all the nods Dirty Beaches makes to Lynch, this video for “Lone Runner” is more in the realm of Tarantino. Oriental robe. Domestic banality. And (SPOILER ALERT) lady victim turned femme fatale with baptism of blood. The reveal of the black eye, hidden for the video’s first half, is effective. Who is that poor man? Who? Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.
The music, of course, is fantastic too, and if you haven’t yet gotten your hands on Badlands, get at it!
