Perhaps one of the most fashion-influential films of the year so far, The Runaways chronicles the rapid rise and fall of Joan Jett's 1970s girl-rock band. The film director, Floria Sigismondi, previously directed Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People" video, and has worked with artists including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Interpol, and The White Stripes.

Dazed interviewed Sigismondi in its April 2010 issue and asked her what her favorite music video projects were. Here is what she named:
· Sigur Ros "Untitled"
· White Stripes "Blue Orchid"
· Living Things "Bom Bom Bom"
· Christina Aguilera "Hurt"
· The Cure "End of the World"

· The Underworld of Floria Sigismondi [Dazed Digital]
