Still life

Tortoise - Prepare Your Coffin from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

The lovely conceit here is that we follow a photographer around a city, and the whole video is itself a series of gorgeous black and white photographs--even the shots that have motion in them. They remind you of this with frequent cuts and by keeping the camera very still most of the time. It's very beautiful.
