David Knight - 20th July 2017

Danny Brown is cooking something up in the kitchen - just not sure it's food - in this superbly hallucinatory video directed by Matilda Finn.

With a great use of extreme low angles and close-ups, and gritty black and white photography by Joel Honeywell, Finn builds a sense of existential dread and claustrophobia in the apartment where outsiders are keen to be admitted and sample the wares.

At the same time, amid Danny's fear and self-loathing and tenuous grasp of reality, there are scantily-clad girls and cash. Finn comes at these hip-hop staples from a new viewpoint - and still makes them sexy.
