Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife"


It's been over a year since Fiona Apple released The Idler Wheel, but how could she resist making a video for album highlight "Hot Knife" with Paul Thomas Anderson? In fact, PTA happens to be Fiona's ex, and they've collaborated on videos in the past, but haven't worked together for thirteen years. We're glad they put their differences aside to work together on this one, because it's fantastic. Fitting the song's slowly piling layers of instruments and vocals, the video's all split screens and changing image effects, but otherwise hyper-minimalist - it perfectly works with Fiona's intense, compelling performance personality. Check it out.
