From MTV To Movies: Michel Gondry's Evolution
Above: Gondry's The Science of Sleep tells the story of a man whose waking and dreaming lives collide.
Since the 1993 release of his video for Björk's "Human Behavior," Michel Gondry's name has become synonymous with his unique-bordering-on-bizarre directorial style. For his latest project, The Science of Sleep, Gondry has tried his hand at writing as well as directing. The film, which centers around a man whose dreams encroach on his reality, premiered in theaters last Friday.
For those interested in seeing the evolution of Gondry's style, salon.com has compiled a sampling of some of his commercials, short films and music videos.
