On Saturday I caught a presentation of classic music videos by renowned pop-culture critic Armond White of New York Press. The event was part of Film Society of Lincoln Center's annual New York Video Festival, in which White has participated for the last decade or so. Some years he's shown a selection of the best videos from the preceding 12 months; other times he's hosted in-person dialogues with especially accomplished auteurs such as Marcus Nispel and Benjamin Stokes. Always, he offers the rare chance to see great music videos interspersed with terse commentary that widens your perceptions to suit Lincoln Center's big screen.
