Eminem- Not Afraid

Here is the link to Eminem’s Not Afraid Music Video:

Eminem’s not afraid video addresses his fears, and he proclaims he is not afraid and will get over his problems. He acknowledges his faults. Yet, he doesn’t completely know himself which is suggested from the distorted images he sees of himself. Eminem literally breaks out of his cage to put his life back in order, and just when he feels he is about to hit rock bottom he gains super powers. Not Afraid was directed by Rich Lee.

3 Pros
  1. Not Afraid was suspenseful because you never know what to expect from Eminem.
  2. I felt Eminem’s pain and I was right there with him getting over it.
  3. Eminem saw himself distorted when he looked in the mirror. 

3 Cons
  1. Some of the symbolism might be a little too deep for some people to catch.
  2. I thought the super powers were very cliché.
  3. There were a lot of themes for one video.
