Following the release of the single, Robert Copsey of Digital Spy commented, "we thought it would be near-impossible for Lana to top the chilling ' Video Games ', but her new cut — the title track from her forthcoming album — may just have out-haunted its predecessor. The calm tone of Del Rey's voice sets sad-love mood really well. You didn't hear it from us, right?
It's a controversial video. You'll have to wait to see it but I got a generous budget. It was a special experience. I hope you like it — this isn't the time or way I wanted to show you the video but I'm in Beijing with no access to social media , and the videos been leaked from Russia so someone is posting this for me. Bradley Soileau plays Del Rey's fictional boyfriend in the video and was interviewed numerous times about the role.
Billboard asked if his proximity to Del Rey caused him to become erect , to which he replied: "Embracing her [Del Rey] was easy. Everyone asks the same question, did you have a boner?

He did not meet Del Rey until the day of the video shoot. Recalling the experience, he applauded the production team, saying they were agreeable coworkers, highlighting Del Rey as a soulful and amazing personality. He identified with background dancers and actresses in rap music videos, as they are often sultry and objectified. I'm her boyfriend. It's basically like, the boyfriend, you can see the two sides of the relationship where I'm kissing her, then pointing a gun at her head.
That's what it is. That's why when she is in the car, and she wipes the glass, she's looking mad sad, distant, thoughtful. That's kinda the story for it. Del Rey said she agreed to allow Soileau to play her fictional boyfriend because he reminded her of a previous lover, namely the one she had written the original concept about. The video begins with Del Rey seen standing topless in the arms of a tattooed man, played by model Bradley Soileau,  with the American flag as a backdrop. The scene is followed by the singer leaving her home and joining her boyfriend for a long car trip.
As they enter the car, they start to smoke marijuana together and make out before leaving. While on the road, the relationship of the couple is revealed to be unstable,  as Del Rey is forced to kiss her boyfriend while expressing sadness. The trip intercuts with scenes of the couple staying at a luxurious hotel, where they are seen lying on a bed together with the boyfriend ominously holding Del Rey's throat at one point. Also, the video intercuts scenes shot at the Palace of Fontainebleau , showing Del Rey sitting on a throne with tigers beside her in the Trinity Chapel or walking in the Gallery of Francis I.
The video ends with the opening scene. The music video received generally positive reviews from critics.
Born to Die (song)
Jason Lipshutz of Billboard compared the car scenes to the ones of Rihanna 's music video for "We Found Love" ;  Ann Lee of Metro considered the music video "sexy",  with Rolling Stone journalist Matthew Perpetura noting that, "just like the song itself, it's bleakly romantic and majestic in its scope.
