Another amazing new video from David Bowie! Once again, he’s teamed up with Floria Sigismondi – the same director who did the video for ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’ – and this time Bowie plays a prophet. Gary Oldman co-stars as a priest and Marion Cotillard is the leading lady, portraying a prostitute who develops stigmata. The cinematography and styling in this video is brilliant – so many frames make amazing images in their own right.Love this demonic nun look – definitely doing something similar for Halloween this year!When I first saw it, I thought it was a bit of a shame that people are so jaded these days that it probably wouldn’t be recognised as being particularly scandalous. But then I read some headlines about how it had already pissed off some Catholics and I took comfort in the fact that of course religious zealots and Daily Mail readers are still so easy to shock! To experience it in its full glory you should probably watch it on Vimeo – then you don’t have to see an annoying logo and can watch it on a full screen. Enjoy!
