The Perfect Post

Jonathan Demme was an American film director, producer, and screenwriter, who created this video for NewOrder in 1985 for The Perfect Kiss, taken from their album Low Life.

He sadly passed away a few days ago. But his legacy continues.

The video is 10 minutes long and superbly captures NewOrder in their prime.

Jonathan Demme directed “The Perfect Kiss” video, which is unlike any other New Order clip. Set in the band’s practice room, it simply depicts the band playing the song from beginning to end. According to Factory Records owner Tony Wilson, Demme was looking forward to filming dynamic shots of Stephen Morris behind the drum kit and was dismayed to find that the drums in the song were all programmed.

RIP.
