This video for “Sound & Color” by the Alabama Shakes is just a brilliant tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, including lots of one-point perspective shots and some lovely white corridors. And it has an amazing storyline about an astronaut who wakes from cryogenic sleep to discover an unpleasant truth.

This video came out in late April, so you may already have seen it — but if you haven’t, it’s really astonishing and worth checking out. And it tells a complete story in three minutes!
