We're increasingly impressed by Daniel Radcliffe. It's not the easiest thing to escape from the shadow of a huge franchise but, while he's likely to be followed by jokes about quidditch for the rest of his life, the young actor has made a pretty good job of breaking out of Harry Potter, impressing in diverse stage roles in "Equus" and "How To Succeed In Business..." (and recently signing on to Martin McDonagh's "The Cripple of Inishmaan" in the West End), having a legitimate sleeper hit with "The Woman In Black," and joining an impressive cast to play Allan Ginsberg in "Kill Your Darlings."

Once upon a time, back in the dim, dark Blogspot days of The Playlist, we had a feature called Videodrome, which looked at a selection of recent music videos by notable directors with big-name actors or just clips that were worth a watch.
