Father John Misty attempts to check out of his own personal Hotel California in Jeff Desom and Carlos Lopez Estrada's fabulous video for Mr. Tillman.

When FJM leaves this Coen-esque establisment, glancing at the model of the hotel in the lobby on his way out, he enters a universe where his sense of self and independence is remorsely exposed as a sham. Each stage reveals another part of the puzzle and deepens his nightmare of helplessness.

This is beautifully achieved by Desom and Lopez Estrada, every shot essential to moving this riveting psycho comedy-horror forward. To quote another Father John aka Josh Tillman song, it is total entertainment forever.
