Cate Blanchett Undergoes a Surrealist Face Transformation in Massive Attack’s New Music Video

If Man Ray and Salvador Dalí were still alive and kicking in 2016, we’d like to imagine Massive Attack’s new music video for “The Spoils” (featuring Hope Sandoval) would be the result of a collaboration between the two surrealists. The English trip-hop group recruited Cate Blanchett to star in the John Hillcoat–directed video, which finds the actress’s rotating head going through six minutes of eerie morphing, warping, and eventual decomposing. Proceed with caution if you aren’t a fan of human anatomy.
