For a video that where the artist doesn’t appear once, it captures the mood of the song amazingly well. Although the visuals are enticing and impeccably done, I can’t help but think I’ve seen this scene before. Namely, the third Harry Potter and all the Lord of the Rings films.
Nabil is definitely breaking away from the pack in terms of artistic music video directors, but I don’t think he can say that this is his best work. I haven’t seen everything he’s done but I know that his Welcome to Heartbreak video is definitely the best thing he’s done with just Kanye alone. If you haven’t watched that, you need to.

Your monitor is fine. It’s called screen-tearing.
