Many movie fans know who Spike Jonze is, but he’s still hardly a household name. Jonze is a more than capable film director – see Being John Malkovich, for example – and like other talented film directors, he’s directed his fair share of music videos. Jonze has a style that defies classification and just about all of his music videos are “fun” to watch. I thoroughly enjoyed Where the Wild Things Are, but for a glimpse of Jonze’s talent, all you need to do is check out some of his music videos.
