Lana Del Rey | Ride
Why do I love her as much as I do? While Born to Die was an ultimately disappointing album, I find myself so very drawn to all of LDR’s videos. Ride is actually one of the best things she has recorded, but this video, this 10 minute long mini-film that is half devoted to watched Del Rey cycle through every last emotion she knows how to portray while breathily reading what sound like excerpts from her diary…it’s just beautiful. So say what you will about the big lipped gangster Nancy Sinatra, she knows how to make pretty things sometimes, and this is one of her best.
