Music Video Review: KILLING US SOFTLY (Australia)

A wide reaching music video filled to bursting with social commentary and vivid visual metaphor, KILLING US SOFTLY holds nothing back with it’s musical up-front approach to world issues.

From racism, to health care, from corporate greed to social injustice, KILLING US SOFTLY throws an unapologetic light on the areas of our world many of us wish didn’t exist. Colorful and bright with rapid-fire editing creates the illusion of walking through a socially conscious funhouse of a societal extremes.

Although at times the content may see jarring, KILLING US SOFTLY makes its’ point with rhythm, style and a musical accessibility that makes it a worthwhile investment for both music and cinema. A funky framework for many first world criticisms, but a film both enjoyable and meaningful, nonetheless.

Review by Kierston Drier

KILLING US SOFTLY, 5min., Australia, Music Video
Directed by Emilie BoyardA mirror held up to humanity – it points out our ugliest, greediest and most idiotic ways. It is a chant, a protest rally, a wake up call to the people, and a reminder that we still have the power to take back what they are taking from us
