Russell Mulcahy (born June 23, 1953) is a film director who was born in Melbourne, Australia. His career began with making music videos and went on to direct numerous feature films.

Music videos[]

The videos he directed for Duran Duran are:

For Arcadia, he directed "The Flame".

Mulcahy has also directed videos for The Buggles, Elton John, Kim Carnes, The Tubes, Spandau Ballet, Bonnie Tyler, Ultravox, Billy Joel, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Culture Club, Berlin, Icehouse, The Vapors, Taylor Dayne, Rod Stewart, Def Leppard, Kenny Loggins, Falco, Go West, Cliff Richard, Supertramp, The Motels, Talk Talk, The Stranglers, 10cc, The Human League, XTC, and AC/DC.


In 1986, Mulcahy directed the cult classic film Highlander, featuring music from Queen. He later directed the sequel, Highlander II: The Quickening, but disowned it after the producers interfered with the film's creation. He eventually took the opportunity to restore his vision for the film - to some extent - with the DVD release of Highlander 2: The Renegade Version.

Mulcahy wanted to direct a film of the Burroughs story The Wild Boys, and talked to Duran Duran about writing the soundtrack in the same way that Queen had done for Highlander, but the project never came to fruition.
