Special Problems’ soft core porn-meets-art house video for The Naked and Famous’ single, “The Sun” off of their album Passive Me, Aggressive You has that quality of making you feel like, Man, if I were European, I would be totally unfazed by all this nudity, I see this stuff everyday—on soap commercials and daytime television! Aside from that, it also gets at a very universal, non-nationalistic truth: There are always power struggles in romantic/sexual relationships. Also really appreciate the primary color filters and color blocks, which remind me of one of the best opening-sequence-in-a-film-about-relationships-and-power-struggles-that-also-includes-nudity ever.
