â€œTime of the Assassins" is layered so deep in cultural heritage, it's surprising you can hear Charlotte Gainsbourg's breathy voice over top of it all. Let's see if we can unravel it. The song was written and produced by Beck, whose grandfather was a member of the Fluxus art movement in the '60s. Gainsbourg is the daughter of French pop icon Serge Gainsbourg. The title is a reference to a book by Henry Miller on Rimbaud, the French decadent poet. Miller lived for many years in Big Sur, where this video, gorgeously shot by Todd Cole, was filmed. ANYway, the video features the sultry singer romping around nature and defying gravity with the help of some clever CGI. It's damn good.
