Tim Burton Made This... Yeah

Tim Burton directed this video for The Killers song Here With Me, and boy does it show. There are pin wheels and lots of black and white contrast and a damned creepy Winona Ryder doll, and a child unsettling enough that I began to suspect this video might have had autobiographical overtones (don't believe me, look at Burton, then look at his various muses over the years. Notice a discrepancy?).

The over all tone and look of the video is quite dominating, and does distract from the rather banal song it is representing (or, maybe it's not. Music written in the last thirty years all sounds basically the same to me).
