Gary F$&king Oldman stars in Video for David Bowie's The Next Day

...and Marion Cotillard. And is that Tilda Swinton, or do I just have her on the brain because of the The Stars (are out tonight) video from a few months ago? This is the work of the same director, Floria Sigismondi, who I'd not realized until now directed 2010's Runaways film, basd on the band of the same name*. I'm becoming quite the fan of Ms. Sigismondi's work, and this new Bowie video is a great example why. She moves in a very particular way within the setting - it's almost dream-like. The Next Day is wonderfully strewn with blasphemy and, did I mention, GARY OLDMAN!!!

Also, I should add NSFW, which appears to be becoming the new music video paradigm?
