A couple days ago over whiskey, we were talking to our friend who has never seen Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain. We tried to explain how Brian Epstein gave Jodorowsky a blank check to realize whatever impulse his tripped out surrealist brain came up with. Therefore, in the film there will be like, one scene with a live panther walking through it, and the panther never shows up in the rest of the movie. A vanity panther, rented for one frame. This Bat for Lashes video most certainly cost a lot less than Holy Mountain, but proves all you need to make, ahem, THE BEST VIDEO EVER is a jacket with human hair epaulets, a wolf and a laser shooting from said wolf's eye.
