Appearing in a video for Massive Attack is a hot ticket these days, with Blanchett following Kate Moss and Rosamund Pike to take centre stage in the latest promo for the band, for track The Spoils, which features vocals from Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval.
The meditative film sees Hillcoat slowly evolve Blanchett’s features through many forms, from a Cindy Sherman-esque mask, to a claymation character, to an ancient stone monument. Eerie and compelling, it provides the perfect accompaniment to the music.
