Fiona Apple: Criminal
Ah, the late 90s, sweet.
After watching this video, why do I feel so dirty? The music seems to be an ending to an extremely wild orgy of some kind with all the sweaty people sleeping around the house. I’m sure the post party smells like beer, corn chips and weed. It almost makes me want to go this party, but then realizing I would have to drop by the clinic the next day for a screening.
I have to give the director credit for making the whole video seem very seedy with the side-pans throughout the entire video. It almost gives it a 80s porn feel with the brown colors and strange edits.
This music video and song put Fiona Apple on the map thanks to her different look and strong voice. The song is very dirty with its message, and probably something today’s Fiona wouldn’t sing. This song proved that she was a good singer with an interesting video to back it up.
While Fiona isn’t “my type” in body shape, she looks pretty damn good-looking here. I guess it is the way they shot her and put focus on her very pretty eyes.
-What are you trying to say with the “long” nose stuffed doll?
-A vacuum cleaner? What are you trying to suggest there, Fiona?
-Why are you in a closet, Fiona?
-Did you catch the little noose tied to the chair at the end of the video? What was that about?
-Why are there oranges in the bath? Are people worried about scurvy?
