Subject: Question about a New Order video

Written By: Screwball54 on 11/25/02 at 08:41 p.m.

In New Order's video for "Bizzare Love Triangle", about 2/3's of the way through they stop the music, and cut to a black and white seen with three people in a room. The girl says, "I don't believe in reincarnation because a refuse to thing that I may come back as a bug or a rabbit."  The guy in the room then says, "Your a real up person". The camera then flashes to a third girl in the back of the room.  I think the scene was made up for the video, but the quote seems familiar like it may have been in a movie.  Does anyone know if that quote came from a movie?

From what I can find, the scene was filmed for the video, at the request of the video's director, New York artist Robert Longo. He also directed the 1995 sci-fi film Johnny Mnemonic.

I found this bit of information on that scene from a New Order site:

"Thats that whacky Robert Longo for you... that part was filmed for inclusion
in the video, at his
request... hasnt the late 80's New York art scene aged poorly? (check out
David Salle et al)...
what is Julian Schnabel doing nowadays?"

Here's the site, if you want to take a look:
