Kanye West - Runaway
"Wow", is all I can really say. Upon viewing snippets of this film, I was really excited to see what Ye had cooked up. The visuals revealed in the small clips really drew me in leaving me anxious to see what the finished product would translate into. Upon initially watching the full piece of work, I was floored by the landscape that Kanye put down. The colors used were striking. The phoenix costume was outstanding. I admit to having to watching it a second time to really appreciate the entire work. Don't get it twisted. This isn't Thriller. This is a unique musical and visual experience completely different from anything hip hop has ever produced. Its weird. Its beautiful. Its audibly pleasing. Its another moment for Mr. West.
