When filmmaker Jen Senko’s parents moved to a place where her father had a long solo commute to work and started listening to Talk Radio to alleviate the boredom, her family saw him change from a non-political Democrat to a radicalized, angry Right-Wing Republican. What happened to Dad?

Trailer: The Brainwashing of My Dad

"Um… Apocalypse, beach, fire with beauty and water and those are Baywatch-cloned women at the end."

That’s how Hole’s Melissa Auf der Maur describes Paul Hunter’s video for ‘Malibu’.

And that’s about right. It’s a very music video-y music video. There’s lots of stuff happening. But there is a method to the madness. The song, cowritten with Billy Corgan, alludes to Kurt Kobain’s stint in a Malibu rehab clinic for heroin addition. Hunter and director of photography Martin Coppen follow suit, imposing Cobain’s Seattle-bred darkness onto the Warm California Sun. Coppen received a Best Cinematography VMA nomination for the video, at a time when that still sort of meant something.

Hunter directed videos for seemingly everyone in the 90’s. In 1998, the year he made this, he also directed Janet Jackson, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Boys II Men, Usher, Missy Elliot, Everclear, Queen Latifa, Brandy, A Tribe Called Quest, Babyface, Marilyn Manson, Matchbox 20 and Lenny Kravitz, among others. Despite the relative darkness found here, Hunter was clearly hired to help Hole fit in with this group. It worked. 

Why this video? @cassette88 asked if we do requests. I guess we do. 

I could tell you that this is a collaboration between the band The Acid, filmmaker Dugan O’ Neal and the choreography/art trio WIFE. I could also tell you that it’s based on photographs by Toby Burrows [NSFW]. But none of this is important right now.

Just press play and prepare to be mesmerized.
