On New Year's Day, my boyfriend invited me to watch NPR's "The Most Stylish Music Videos of 2012" with him. He had already watched a few videos on his own while I was blowdrying my hair, but kindly replayed Fiona Apple's "Every Single Night" before scrolling down the page and clicking on this one. Explosions in the Sky's "Postcard from 1952" was recognized as "Most Gorgeous Video That Seems to Remind Us of Something . . ."
Key word: GORGEOUS.
I'm convinced that this might be the most beautiful piece of filmmaking I've ever seen. I'm serious.
