Steven Wilson, “Harmony Korine” from his 2009 album Insurgentes. Video shot, edited, and directed by Lasse Hoile.

I love how deftly this straddles the border of narrative.  When I watch this, it feels like story.  When it’s over, I’m not so sure: it’s like waking up from a dream.  The sensation of story seems to come not simply from it being a piece of sequential art, having characters and movement, but because of certain key interactions, certain familiar scenes and movements.  Of this, genres are made.
