Fans accuse West and director Hype Williams of ripping off themes from the French film 'Enter the Void,' in the video, which features guest appearances from Rihanna and Kid Cudi, as well as verses from Fergie, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Tony Williams, Alicia Keys, La Roux and The-Dream.
The scenes in question shows a series of flashing lights and text spelling out the song lyrics, which is very similar to the opening sequence of 'Enter The Void,' the cult film released last year by director Gaspar Noe. As critic Linda Sharps points out, "Either it's a deliberate homage to the film, or ... maybe nobody thought Kanye's fans would know anything about relatively obscure French melodramas. Hard to say."
Our assumption is that Kanye West and Hype Williams knew exactly what they were doing. Both as artists, and as mucisians who have collaborated with some big French names. We'd also point out that the scenes of Kanye singing while perched on top of a police car could also be interpreted as an homage to Michael Jackson's 'Black Or White' video.
What do you think? Watch both clips and tell us if you think Kanye West ripped off 'Enter the Void' in his new video for 'All of the Lights.'
