The fantastical, eerie and imaginative vision of music-video director Michel Gondry is captured here in full with a complete tour of his work and a two-part documentary. The project is one of Palm's Directors Series DVDs, which have also spotlighted Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze. More than 25 of Gondry's videos are featured, including Björk's "Human Behavior," which shows slightly surreal animals becoming human; Foo Fighters' "Everlong," a black-and-white piece of horror-movie-inspired situations; and the White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl," which is composed solely of Lego-like shapes. Fans can delve deeper into Gondry's one-of-a-kind style in the documentary—which includes interviews with the director, family members and musicians—and in the enclosed 52-page booklet. Gondry's strange sense of humor can also be seen in shorts like his Levi's "Drug Store" commercial and the "Pecan Pie" film with Jim Carrey.—JK
