Ghosts. It is more a short movie than a music video to me. The location, the floor, the special effects, the plot, the mayor disguise. At first, I did not know Michael was the mayor. I was just thinking "I've seen these eyes somewhere".
Princess talked about visual entertainment. Go watch the part where he possesses the mayor and holds the mirror for him. That angry face is really something. You can hear Michael's frustation thanks to the way he keeps saying the word "freak". That laugh which means "I can hear you think, this is what I go through everyday." is frightening. That scary reflection saying "Who's weird now ?!". Such a great idea. Very poignant.
You first have the mayor which I didn't like and didn't recognize till I saw the 'credits' rolling by and went and then of course the 2nd viewing, I did recognize those 'dark eyes' lol
Second you have those 'ghouls' dancing on the ceiling that is WOW really! Then you have the skeleton which is my favorite
The part where Michael 'smashes' itself into the ground is the most 'creepy' part and where his face is as huge as the door is the 'funny' part with the mayor 'jumping' through the window. Also the part where the mayor is 'possessed' by Michael that is 'stunning' too.
"Smooth criminal" would be a close second to 'visual stunning' with the lean and how he fires that gun without anyone getting hurt lol. I also love how that coin travels through space and just 'starts' the whole Magic of "Smooth Criminal". One of my fave parts is how that black cat walks over the piano and how the 'tension' is build to the point where Michael yells 'Annie are you okay! " Very artistic!

The entire Ghosts movie is mindblowing...
As a musicvideo - Smooth Criminal
I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks
I think Ghosts should stand on its own b/c it's more like a full movie than a short film. So I chose Remember the Time because I like the cultural background and the hints to a powerful black past. After reading Susan Fast's book I watch it with different eyes.
Music, in the precision of its form and the mathematical tyranny of its laws, escapes into an eternity of abstraction and an absurd sublime that is everywhere and nowhere at once.
