MORE IS MORE FOR J.LO AND DIRECTOR ANTHONY MANDLER
In the new documentary Jodowrowsky's Dune, film fan favorite and acid afficionado Alejandro Jodowrowsky laments a movie that was never made—one that was perfectly planned out, down to the ridiculously long intro, inspired by Orson Welles' Touch Of Evil. For today's audiences and their Instagram video-level attention spans, a wait as long as this feels endless, so it's probably safe to say the original Dune would have to fight for to employ such experimentation even today (if it wasn't already backed by a cult following). Strangely, though, another champion of the (almost) uninterrupted tracking shot is the extremely successful music video director Anthony Mandler. And he's done it again with Jennifer Lopez's newest video, "First Love," a melodrama set in one of his favorite settings to film: a barren desert wasteland. Watch above, and click through the slideshow to see a few more of Mandler's longer-than-song-length videos and their crane-shot intros, for Selena, Justin, Rih, Lana, and more.
