“Avatar” Director’s Long-Lost Video

Today I bring you a collaboration between Oscar-nominated exes James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow that I never knew existed: a 1988 music video called “Reach” that Cameron directed for Bill Paxton’s short-lived rock band Martini Ranch (!), in which he cast imminent wife and future Hurt Locker director Bigelow as a sexy, Wild West gunslinger. This music video also features “credited whistler” Judge Reinhold, lady-bodybuilder beefcake, a capuchin monkey, anachronistic computers for some reason, and cameos from Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Jenette Goldstein, and Adrian Pasdar.
