Bat For Lashes’ clip for “What’s A Girl To Do?” is one of my favorite videos of the year so far–how can you be immune to the charms of a one-take movie that’s completely focused on mask-wearing bike riders executing jumps in unison?–and Paper Thin Walls has a chat with the clip’s director, Dougal Wilson, up today. Fun fact: Donnie Darko wasn’t the only movie that inspired the video; that honor can be shared by the closing scene of E.T. and The Wicker Man. Let’s just hope it was the original, because while it’s a terrible, terrible movie, that punch-drunk remake with Nicolas Cage somehow managed to be worse.
