Though he might be best known for his video collaborations with Björk, director Michel Gondry got his start playing drums in the French pop band Oui Oui, before his clips for the band's songs started garnering him more attention as a filmmaker than as a musician. From there, he went on to direct award-winning commercials, short films, and countless videos for bands the likes of the White Stripes, Foo Fighters, and Daft Punk, many of which are collected on The Work of Director Michel Gondry. Also included are interviews of the artists with whom Gondry has collaborated. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

    Fantastic, he really raised the bar in music video production!

    This man is a genius. It doesn't even matter if something he does is boring to watch, the fact that it must have taken him 700 straight hours to do makes him my hero.

    A compilation of music videos, adverts, interviews from Michel Gondry. The man can make a silk purse out of a sows ear.,

Books could be written about Gondry's pieces, but this former drummer remains a rock & roller at heart. Invariably, his videos are visual invitations to bang your head.

What's refreshing about Gondry, like Spike Jonze is that he's willing to drop the budget and polish to try something new. Full Review

Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

Comes with a few essentials, including the outstanding White Stripes video for "Fell in Love With a Girl." Full Review

Gondry has a gift for visual sleight-of-hand that simply boggles one's mind.

Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You

The work of Michel Gondry demonstrates that the music video can not only sell records, but also invest pop music with intimacy and emotion. Full Review

Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

Some notable clips are missing, but this is a pretty comprehensive overview of music video auteur Michel Gondry's work, from 1987 to 2003. Full Review
