Iconic Patti Smith invited Robert Frank to direct this music video, which marked her comeback in the nineties. “The camera moves restlessly, as if unwilling to become too attached to a particular face. At the end of the song, Smith offers herself up to be consumed – cannibalism with a messianic flavor.” (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam)
