Picks and Pans Review: Singular Videos

UPDATED 07/18/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/18/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT


A wildly eclectic collage of newsreels, cartoons, vintage movies and nature footage shows how all God's creatures—from Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio to a lioness and her cub—are transformed by the instinct to care for each other. The best part of this Foreigner clip is you never have to see the puffy boys in the band.


The refrain goes "Walk on," and firemen, police officers, high school kids and other genuine citizens of Williamsburg, Va.—home of Bruce Hornsby's brother John—do just that in this warm, congenial tape. And yes, that guy sitting in on clarinet is Bruce's dad, Bob.

MOST OF ALL Director David Fincher's black-and-white photography, stark lighting and evocative silhouettes turn what is basically a routine ballad sung by Jody Watley into a moody bit of video noir.
