Video: Rufus Wainwright – Out of the Game

Written by

Rufus Wainwright’s new album “Out of the Game” stuck in my head on and off since the first day I heard it. If that’s not a song with a hook, I don’t know what is!

I love it and I love it even more after watching this video starring Helena Bonham Carter. She plays a bored librarian dealing with the various eccentric people you might come across in such a place, all played by Rufus himself.

It’s a fun one and the ending was a bit unexpected (though it does show Helena in lingerie, for those who might be interested in seeing Tim Burton’s muse in such a way)

The entire Mark Ronson-produced album is great and I highly recommend it!
