Tilda Swinton as David Bowie, David Bowie as Tilda Swinton, David Bowie and Tilda Swinton sitting on a couch—really any combination of those two other-worldly genius creatures is a dream come true. And with Bowie’s new reemergence into the spotlight, we get to see the two together in his video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).”
Artist and director Floria Sigismondi, who has given us videos from Fiona Apple and The Cure to The White Stripes and Bowie’s “Dead Man Walking," works her magic yet again to give us Swinton and Bowie as a married couple who find their lives tormented by young celebrities. Running almost six minutes long, we get a well-shot and well-edited look at the two in both in peaceful and obsessive domesticity. Take a look.
