"Fiorucci Made me Hardcore" by Mark Leckey
The truth inside this video is so real and so carefully alluded to via the edits - it’s about the young individual utterly lost in abandon in the dancing crowd and at various points in the late 20th century society has brought more or less young people to that pure moment depending on the youth culture. Lecky is a genius.
This video is probably best understood when you are past that moment. The moment remains constant, but time (as the VHS digits show) brings us past it. We only dip our toes in it once. Also love how the threat of violence dissipates like a wave on a rock around the time of rave culture, but it seems to bring an added dementedness as a forfeit. Lecky looks out over the city in the video, as he should, he has a subjective angle on youth that the physical viewpoint in the video merits. (via Youtube comments)
