So what does David Fincher do after directing and executive producing a thirteen-hour political drama? He puts on a “Suit & Tie” of course. As we reported not too long ago, Fincher reteamed with his “The Social Network” star Justin Timberlake to helm the video for the first single from the actor’s return to music, The 20/20 Experience. The video has arrived, and it’s pretty slick little thing.
In black and white, it’s a crisp spot that rightly focuses the camera mostly on Timberlake doing his thing, singing, dancing, and looking good. We also get some brief stuff of a woman in lingerie cavorting around, and some studio sessions, but for our money, the gold is right at the beginning with Timberlake and Jay-Z just busting a cold hang. Idea: after Fincher is done with “House Of Cards,” maybe he can do a sitcom with Timberlake and Jay-Z as roommates trying to make in the wacky world of the music industry? We’d watch that in a heartbeat. Until then, here’s “Suit & Tie.” [Pitchfork]
