There’s a message at the beginning of The Weeknd’s new video warning “explicit content” and “graphic violence” – intriguing! Like Grand Theft Auto come to life, it puts you in the POV of the “bad guy,” a hostage-holding bank robber on a bloody, gun-slinging cop chase. The dizzying action poses the perfect complement to a song pulsing with bursts of fitful energy. Look out for an ending with a twist.
