I saw a film recently. It starred craggy acting man Willem “Willem” Dafoe hunting a supposedly long extinct tiger, learning things about himself and winding up the locals to keep himself busy as the film crew took turns in a game of “who can drag a shot out for the longest”. Surprisingly, it wasn’t very good, but I knew what it would allow me to do, I knew that three weeks later I would have the perfect reasonably tedious anecdote to open a post about Antony and the Johnsons with. He stars in this, a video for Antony and the Johnsons’ previously unreleased ‘Cut The World’, which centers around the apparently global fantasy of slicing open the throats of people who seem reasonably nice.
You can see the video above, backed by the obviously brilliant track from Antony and the Johnsons forthcoming live album of the same title. I highly recommend you purchase it here (USA, your link is here).
