Artist: Duran Duran
Picture Ratio: 4:3
Arena is somewhat of an oddity. Rather than do a straight concert video, Duran Duran decided to do a movie of sorts. What we therefore get is concert footage interspersed with a plot involving the villian from the 1968 movie Barbarella (though he bears a closer resemblance to Krankor from Prince of Space) and his trio of short henchmen.
Mainly this makes it hard to enjoy the concert footage because Durand-Durand breaks in with some snarling comment just when you're trying to listen, but it did give us the pretty cool music video for "Wild Boys" (with windmill-dipping action!) which is here a lot longer than the standard video. But the plot-related parts are largely crack, such as the bit where Durand-Durand kidnaps some young women and forces them to roller skate in a circular set ALA Robbie William's "Rock DJ" video. When this doesn't achieve... whatever it is he was aiming for, he hangs them upside-down in kinky lingerie over tanks of putrid green water.
Once you get the hang of the balance they seem to be going for, this is quite fun. But still very very strange.
