I never really liked Beyonce (even after the "ring on it" craze), but I will take off my hat to her and admit that, as a piece of visual media, her latest music video Sweet Dreams is beautiful! The gentle, hazy cinematography establishes the airy, dream-like quality as we journey from the desert, to finally a realm of futura unlike anything I ever thought Beyonce was capable of. She's a simple lady, but the team behind her is fantastic and if she keeps putting out more videos like this I might have to take notice!
Enjoy, and don't blink or you'll miss the subtle reference to Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man at 1:13-1:15!
