Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry (not “Michael Gondry”) is a French filmmaker know for his odd, dream-like style. His most recognizable work was probably the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which showcased his unique visual style. He’s also directed numerous music videos and commercials, many of which have the same style. I’ve always liked his work because of the way he manages to visually express the non-linear nature of dreams. Situations, settings, and people in dreams change abruptly and without logical structure. With blurred edges, a dream is not dominated by any real-world rules. This makes the effect Gondry achieves even more impressive. Like dreams, much of his work stays with you, subtlety gnawing at your subconscious.

Music Videos

The White Stripes - Fell in Love With a Girl

The Chemical Brothers - Let Forever Be

Radiohead - Knives Out

Gary Jules - Mad World

In closing, here is a short video of Mr. Gondry solving a Rubik’s Cube with his nose. I have no idea of the context for this clip, if there is any at all.
