Lana Del Rey – Ride

Lana Del Rey and director Antony Mandler recently premiered an epic 10-minute short film “Ride”,  for hundreds of fans in a Santa Monica. There she spoke and sang about romanticized images of the open road, bikers and freedom.

The video certainly succeeds in crafting a longing, ultimately lonely mood for “Ride”‘s melodrama. The pursuit of dreams, personal liberation, and other ideas that lend themselves to dramatic cinematography, can also be seen as simply a continuation of the 1960s nostalgia trip that Del Rey began with “National Anthem”, also directed by Mandler.
