Love Is Lost
David Bowie


Love Is Lost

An engagingly "home-made" aesthetic perfectly suits this artisanal remix of Bowie's Love Is Lost. Chock full of references to earlier  musical works, earlier clips and the cinematic tropes of some of his heroes, it is a playfully dense little film shadowed with the rather desperate, low level hysteria that has crept into the artist's later songs. There is a definite convergence of mood, means and meaning which is at the heart of any really committed enterprise. Tony Orsler's signature face projection technique is, as always, oddly unsettling and acts as a perfect metaphor for the now perpetually fugitive phantom of Bowie's persona.  Perhaps the consequence of one too many identities, he now seems to occupy a kind of personal limbo.
