It’s a moody, noir adventure for David Bowie in “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime),” artfully directed by the one and only Tom Hingston (alongside Jimmy King).
You’d half expect to find Humphrey Bogart running out in the distance of this stylized, black-and-white video as Bowie’s voice resounds throughout. It captures the fierceness and intensity we’ve come to expect from Bowie. “Sue” was recorded in collaboration with Tony Visconti and the Maria Schneider Orchestra.
Oh and speaking of collaboration, this marks Bowie’s second collaboration with Tom, whose previous video “I’d Rather Be High,” was celebrated as the wartime protest befitting of one of pop’s premier idols.
