Massive Attack Monster Apocalypse

Massive Attack has released a series of low-budget videos for its new album Heligoland, each created by a different director. This one, called "Splitting the Atom," is an unforgettable, gorgeous scene from an apocalypse.

Directed by Edouard Salier, the video is a masterpiece of 3D rendering, done almost entirely in black and white with an Akira-Cloverfield-style nightmare. The best part is that the city under attack is frozen in time - the only thing moving is our perspective as we swoop between shattered towers, screaming people, helicopters in the process of exploding, and at last nearly into the jaws of a giant creature who appears to be attacking the city.
