    11. Lykke Li - “No Rest For The Wicked”

    Director: Tarik Saleh

    Tarik Saleh hit us with a mini-movie for the "No Rest For The Wicked" video, a powerful accompaniment to the mournful song that seems to touch on racial discrimination as much as it does lost love. Interspersed with scenes of Lykke Li and her lover running carefree through the fields, a story is told, one that starts off full of joy but ends in violence.

    Lykke Li puts in a strong performance, but the stars here are the male in the lead role and the beautiful, remote landscape where the drama takes place.—Constant Gardner
