Good lord, just when I thought she had reached a peak with National Anthem... Ride is seriously mesmerizing, stunning footage and photography, beautifully written and produced, just one hell of a video.
Wow great video! She went beyond my expectations once again.
The last part wansn't necessary indeed, considering the intro and video are strong enough, but it doesn't bother me either, I think everything was very well done. She looks amazing, the styling fits her perfectly, the casting is great, it has drama, humor, rhythm. My special props to the director and director of photography.

Anthony Mandler has really surprised me. His videos aren't usually exciting but with her he really nailed it. The result was extremely good and I could feel it.
"Blue Jeans" is still my favorite video from Lana, though
Read some complaints about the monologue of the video.. I think it's beautiful, the storyline would have zero impact without it, I wonder if she's purposely (at least to me) hinting at Paris, Texas. Cause that's what sold me right away, that faded American ideal, which she masters there.
