Director Daniel Wolfe captured Jake Gyllenhaal for The Shoes' new music video. The 'Time to Dance' video stars Gyllenhaal as a serial killer, chasing his victims through raves, strip clubs and into alleys. The actor's emotionless glare is chilling, reminiscent of certain scenes from his film Donnie Darko. The cinematography is masterfully rendered, playing on in medias res in conjunction with the tempo of the song. Wolfe cuts scenes of murder with strobe-light raves and monotonous routine. The impact is memorable and intrusive.
The Shoes are a French indie dance pop duo. The pair are having explosive success in France, boasting a long and promising career. The basement rave vibe of the music is perfectly combined with the disturbed vision of the film. Both the narrative and the audio seep excess adrenaline and energy.
