The new 'Tropico' Short Film by Lana Del Rey is fantastic. Quality still exists. Well done Anthony Mandler, another epic creation.
Lana Del Rey’s new 27-minute Short Film Tropico works, more or less, as a glossy but bugged-out extended-length music video, a pretentious but sensationalistic dive into her center-free aesthetic. As directed by music-video veteran fantasist Anthony Mandler, LDR and male model Shaun Ross appear...

Working with artists who want to push the envelope is nothing new for Anthony Mandler: just this year alone he's directed videos like Lana Del Rey's "National Anthem" (in which she and A$AP Rocky portray Jackie O and JFK), Fun.'s "Some Nights" (where Nate Reuss's internal struggles are fought on a Civil War battlefield) and Rihanna's "Diamonds" (which deconstructed her life into a series of dreamlike vignettes). Taylor Swift Is Moving Toward A 'New Chapter,' 'Trouble' Director Says But when he heard Taylor Swift wanted to get dark on her new "I Knew You Were Trouble" video, well, even he was a bit surprised. "To be frank, she came to me with the intention of doing something completely different, and that was the mantra from the beginning: 'I want to do something that is radically different, I want to play a character, I want to be somebody else, and I want to tell a really intense story that people can relate to,'" Mandler told MTV News. "So, that's how we started, and then the process was 'Okay, what's t ...
Leave it to Taylor Swift to do something as perfectly planned out as releasing her latest music video, "I Knew You Were Trouble," on her birthday. What makes it even sweeter is the fact that it happens to be the release of her 23rd music video dropping on her 23rd birthday. Except she kind of didn't realize it all worked out like that until now. "It's like a golden video birthday. I realized that like five minutes ago when someone told me and now I'm all excited about it," she told MTV News during the latest episode of "MTV First." "I can't believe it lined up like that." Taylor Swift Releases Her 23rd Music Video On Her 23rd Birthday Taylor Gets A Golden Globe Nod For Her Birthday! And, among all her videos she's dropped so far over the course of her career, this latest video is her favorite. And, her explanation for she loves it so much, also acts as a sort of Cliffs Notes as to what goes down in the Anthony Mandler-directed clip. "I think that this video is my favorite right now just because I've never ...

Lana Del Rey – Ride (videoclip nou) Lana Del Rey a lansat videoclipul piesei Ride, de a cărui regie s-a ocupat Anthony Mandler cu care Lana a mai colaborat și pentru National Anthem. Filmările au avut loc în apropiere de Las Vegas, iar în primele minute din clip putem asculta un monolog foarte interesant, care ar putea deveni “imnul” tutoror fetelor rebele, dornice de libertate și pregătite să trăiască viața la intensitate maximă fără a ține cont de regulile morale ale societății. “I was in the winter of my life- and the men I met along the road were my only summer. At night I fell sleep with vision of myself dancing and laughing and crying with them. Three year down the line of being on an endless world tour and memories of them were the only things that sustained me, and my only real happy times. I was a singer, not very popular one, who once has dreams of becoming a beautiful poet- but upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like million stars i ...

"Even with an African-American president [today], it's still ... taboo, even if it shouldn't be," - Anthony Mandler "For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future." - President John F. Kennedy Here is the very controversial video for Lana Del Rey's 'National Anthem' that stars A$AP Rocky as President John F. Kennedy and Rey as both Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy. This Anthony Mandler directed video explores a love story with a very tragic (and public) end. It's a story line he knew would stir up controversy, as was his decision to re-cast Jackie and JFK as an interracial couple. Mandler put a lot of effort into getting the fashions of the 1960s just right to shooting on multiple formats to ensure an authentic look. So as is the case with most controversial works, you might not agree with the video's message, but you can definitely appreciate the effort that went into its creation. Tony Clef, Deon K ...
