Review of Runaway (2010) by Henry J — 15 Jul 2018
Kanye West's extended music video Runaway is honestly one of the best music videos I've ever seen, beat out maybe only by Michael Jackson's Thriller and Eminem's Stan. It's more of a Kanye West's Music: The Movie, but it serves its purpose.
I did enjoy the plot aspect of it, as well as the doomed romance between West and a beautiful humanoid phoenix. There's a moment when the beat drops in Lost in the World and we see West start running through a forest, and that's when we know that he is a true genius in the creative arts world.
A really impressive example of music video filmmaking.
Runaway has generally received very positive reviews.
