There’s a lot to be said about simplicity + that is one of the many things I love about the Beyoncé + Jay Z’s ‘Bang Bang, Part One’ above. Besides it being a take on Bonnie + Clyde, but a lot more badass costarring a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO, director Dikayl Rimmasch takes an artsy approach – from French New Wave Cinema, in fact – with Jean-Luc Goddard’s ‘Breathless’ as a huge inspiration. How apropos no, with their tour finale ending in Paris on Saturday at Stade de France?!
‘Bang Bang’ is a trilogy of short films starring ‘Beyoncé + Jay Z that appeared throughout their two-and-a-half month long tour, ‘On the Run’. The subtleties from Bey’s striped top in bed with her flicked eyeliner, a nod to Jean Seaberg + Jay Z with his cigar instead of a cigarette + a large fedora, similar to the one worn by the hot Jean-Paul Belmondo of ‘Breathless’, just keeps you wanting to see more, which I guess is the point with there being two more parts to come. Add a soundtrack with an Ennio Morricone classic + you end up with something #flawless.
