American Utopia

Back to listing
David Byrne, front man of the seminal Talking Heads and guitarist with his own unique style, has spent his career mixing genres, blending New Wave with funk and world music, and snubbing conventions. This stylish concert film not only captures Byrne's acclaimed Broadway performance, but is also a testament to the musical erudition of the director Spike Lee.
