Movie Reviews

More musicians should do this.

"I laughed. I cried. I even pondered.

This is a great project, and one you should purchase, to both enjoy the videos and support the concept.

I did not know much about Death Cab for Cutie, but had a couple of their songs from CMJ Magazine, and I liked them enough. Then I saw a press-report about Death Cab's upcoming project, to let separate different directors create their separate visions of each and every song on their new album Plans. In the end, some wondered if the whole would stand together. I think it has, as Death Cab's music was direction enough to the directors, but you will need to see them all together to judge for yourself. I love music videos, especially the more creative ones, so I thought that this, music even aside, could be great fun.

They released 1 a week, and each Monday during that time, I visited their website, enjoying, even looking forward to Monday! It was with the video for "Summer Skin" that I concluded, this is art, and told all my friends. I have purchased the album, and grown to love the music seperately. The music and videos are deliberate art, which is sometimes hard to find, and even harder to find as well executed as this.

For you Death Cab for Cutie fans, of course you will buy this. For you art and video enthusiasts, and even you industry wonks, check this out. It was a great idea, brilliantly pulled off, and definitely earned a sale from me.

5 stars!"

"If you enjoy the music of Death Cab For Cutie, then this is for you. It's not about the band, it's about the music. This is the way music videos were meant to be. If you enjoyed the Plans album, this will bring new perspective to each of the songs.

Very enjoyable experience for a very enjoyable price."
Hopefully will inspire many more bands to do the same...

"What an awesome idea and tremendous videos from a band with great emotionally powerful songs. I wish more bands would do this kind of thing maybe without any commentary from the band themselves and only from the directors and maybe in Surround sound!! The only flaw that I saw was not having director's commentaries although it was advertised on the back of the package. I remember as a child wanting to create computer aided videos for an entire album and now it's finally been done by DCFC in 2006!! My heroes!!"

"I was very impressed with Directions. All the videos are unique and personal. The combination of the music and video worked really well! The DVD has lyrics, a message from each director, plus an interview with the band. Overall- definetely worth the time, and the money."
