Review of “Prayer X” (2018)

Moving picture, 3 minutes

Yamada Ryōji (animator).

Seen in 2020.

Video for the King Gnu song “Prayer X”. Yamada includes some typical music-video motifs of the musician at his piano, despondent and elevated above a barbaric crowd. Interesting work with the character’s eyes, but otherwise dull.
