Music Video of the Day: Keep Hope Alive by The Crystal Method (1998, dir by Doug Liman)


This video was directed by the same Doug Liman who would later go on to direct Go, The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Edge of Tomorrow, and American Made.  He also served as executive producer of The O.C., a show that definitely deserves to be revived at some point in the near future.

With its Jesse Jackson vocal samples, the song may be political in theme but the video feels more like a mini-heist film.  It’s better than Stephen Soderbergh’s last few heist films.

Enjoy!
