Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Books could be written about Gondry's pieces, but this former drummer remains a rock & roller at heart. Invariably, his videos are visual invitations to bang your head."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Gondry has a gift for visual sleight-of-hand that simply boggles one's mind."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Daily-Reviews
"What's refreshing about Gondry, like Spike Jonze is that he's willing to drop the budget and polish to try something new."
‑ Adam Tierney, IGN DVD
"The work of Michel Gondry demonstrates that the music video can not only sell records, but also invest pop music with intimacy and emotion."
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Comes with a few essentials, including the outstanding White Stripes video for "Fell in Love With a Girl.""
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Some notable clips are missing, but this is a pretty comprehensive overview of music video auteur Michel Gondry's work, from 1987 to 2003."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
