I Wonder Why (Director's Cut)

by Andrew MacGregor


Joesef: “I Wonder Why (Director's Cut)” - 3 mins 46s

Few would call this Joesef promo escapism per se. After all, director Molly Burdett traps the Glaswegian singer-songwriter in a small and dingy flat that literally blows hot and hold. Those desperate to swap town for country post-lockdown may intesify their efforts after watching radio dials melt and flies freeze to death. Lovely.

For everyone else, this is a diverting glimpse into Joesef's cycle of regret and self-punishment ("Me and my brother we were cool when we were younger/Until the pull of all that drugging took him under"). Meanwhile, Burdett and her crew run with the cramped conditions and nail the sticky horror that is a cramped flat during a heatwave.
