Not about quantity, but quality...

"This DVD contains almost all of Jonathan Glazer's eye-popping videos.

I guess he's not directed more than a dozen, but who needs more with a portafolio like his.

Now venturing into feature film, directing Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast and NIcole Kidman in Birth, Jonathan Glazer's DVD showcases his best videos and extensively doucments his other work in commercials and feature film.

"At first glance, I was disappointed by the material provided on this DVD. This is supposed to be a music video compilation, and how many videos are we provided here: 7 or 8? In comparison to the Romanek and Corbijn DVDs, this disc seems to fall short. After a run though, this turned out to be a quality disc of Glazer's "best" material.

Pretty much all the videos (even if there's only a few here) are spectacular. The Karma Police and Street Spirit videos rival Michel Gooooondry for the king of Radiohead directors. The multiple speeds of the subjects in Street Spirit confused me, really confused me, when I first saw the video on MTV, and I still didn't know how he did it until it was explained here. His famous Jamiroquai video is always fun to watch again, and although the floor trick isn't nearly as cool after the first few viewings, you have to admit that it's original. Oh, and I definitely can't leave out the video for "Rabbit in the Headlights," one of my favorites, straight genius.

Although you get gypped with the number of videos, it almost evens out with the film clips, extras, and commercials included here. Glazer has pretty much proven his talents in all three areas, so getting a chance to watch his clever Guinness Commercials or his hilarious dark comedy Sexy Beast is a nice treat (I hope everyone has seen this movie by now). I still haven't seen Birth, though, so I've prevented myself from watching the excerpts here.

The only thing this disc lacks is quality commentary, especially in the music video section. I almost never trade the music for the commentaries, and the extras are pretty weak, too. However, this is a solid introduction to a very unique and talented director, and definitely worth having in your collection."
