Originally composed for Robert Wilson's play "The Life and Death of Marina Abramović," this Antony and the Johnsons song is melancholy, maudlin, and will make you feel emotions. Beautifully bleak.
The new video—directed by Nabil and starring Willem Dafoe, Marina Abramović, and Carice van Houten—is rather like a supershort film against which the song, "Cut the World," acts as a perfect score.
Together, it's a lovely—and bloody, literally—package. [Animal]
