Music is the animating force in so many of Demme’s films, so it’s no surprise that the director brought his distinctive sensibility to videos for artists like New Order (the classic “Perfect Kiss” video), Bruce Springsteen, the Feelies, and post-punk pioneers Suburban Lawns. In true Demme style, the filmmaker largely forgoes visual pyrotechnics in favor of a stripped-down style that puts the focus firmly on the performance.
