Fiona Apple - Paper Bag (2000)

An homage to old-time musical sequences, Fiona Apple moves gracefully along through the song with 20 choreographed 10-13 year old children. Paul Thomas Anderson executes the video using the usual long, sweeping shots with fast dolly/zoom shots to the timing to M. Rooney's dance sequencing. The songs old time feel and dreamy/dark lyrics come to life here in the latest PTA offering.


  1. This is just basically proof that PTA needs to make a musical, asap.

  2. Anderson's sweeping camera movements are simply stunning.
