Lady Gaga
'Marry the Night'
Matthew Perpetua

"It's sort of like my past in an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again," says Lady Gaga at the start of the music video for "Marry the Night," the fifth single from her hit album Born This Way. "It's not that I've been dishonest, it's just that I loathe reality."  It's a succinct summary of Gaga's aesthetic, but the video itself is a sprawling epic, with the song preceded by several minutes of cheeky, artsy psycho-drama set in a mental health clinic. There's ballet, nudity, fashion from the future, French dialogue, cars on fire, a little bit of weeping, and lots and lots of dancing. Even compared to other Gaga video epics, this one seems particularly crazy and ambitious.
