It's been a while

Singer Fiona Apple and filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson were a couple in the 1990s and they made several music videos together. In 2013, 15 years after their relationship, they reunited for another work. Unfortunately, I must say, as much as I love Anderson as a director, these music videos of his do not appeal to me very much. Apple's voice isn't bad, but also not really memorable, nor are the lyrics or contents of her song "Hot Knife". And it's not as catchy as it tries to be. In terms of style, this is probably more simplistic than their other works as, in this one, we only see Apple most of the time from start to finish during these 4 minutes. All in all, I found this slightly underwhelming. Not recommended.
