Will St Leger does The Smiths

Speaking of Morrissey, these videos (made with appropriated 1950s “social guidance” films) are so fantastic and smart!

Smiths songs about how one could never belong as contrapuntal sound for these normative, didactic “redemption tales,” cut so as to stay unresolved…The ending of the one I’ve posted above reminded me a bit of L’Âge d’or (1930).
