Video of the Moment #683: The Kills

For the promo of ‘The Last Goodbye’, the Kills enlisted the directing skills of Oscar-nominated actress Samantha Morton. Not surprisingly for Mosshart and Hince, it’s dark. Yet this is filmed in a very minimalistic way, almost voyeuristic in a photobooth / silent film kind of way and the result is winningly tender. Alison says of the collaboration:

It was an honor to work with Samantha Morton on this Casablanca-esque, silent-film-esque, Americana photobooth Woolworth’s hay day period piece of surrealism/ realism/ story time tell-tale-ism, black and white 35 mm film, washed in strange light, over this love hate tune, heartbreak song, life-goes-on lullaby, The Last Goodbye. It’s a doorway into the future of the fatal past-tense. Get it?
