Music Video of the Week: “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, feat. Ray Dalton

We’re on vacation this week, so no new movie review. The next review comes your way on October 23. Until then, I will be posting two new music videos of the week.

This week’s video is Can’t Hold Usby Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, featuring Ray Dalton. This one is off the duo’s 2012 album The Heist. The video, directed by Ryan Lewis, Jason Koenig, and Jon Jon Augustavo, was nominated for the Best Music Video at the 2014 Grammys and won two MTV Video Music Awards in 2013.

Taking place on two continents and in 16 different locations, the seven-minute video is ambitious, beautiful, and grandiose. The Pacific Northwest, Southern California, New Zealand, and even the tall ship Lady Washington. My favorite feature of this video is the cinematography. It’s stunningly artistic, and almost perfect. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
