Dan O'Halloran first reviewed 9 Crimes over three years ago. The video remains beautiful and amazing even today; it shows how strong music, good composition, and a powerful narrative can stand up to the passage of time.

The lyrics set up a haunting counterpoint to the on-screen action, and the overall effect evokes a powerful and mournful love story. If you've never seen 9 Crimes, you're in for a treat. And as Allison Roberts says, it gets "bonus points for the use of Matteo Cocconcelli's acoustic cover of 9 Crimes over the credits."
