Byrne, David - True Stories (1986) (Criterion Collection Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 28 januari 2019
Music icon David Byrne was inspired by tabloid headlines to make this sole foray into feature film directing, an ode to the extraordinariness of ordinary American life and a distillation of what was in his own idiosyncratic mind. Byrne plays a visitor to Virgil, Texas, who introduces us to the citizens of the town during preparations for it's Celebration of Specialness. As shot by cinematographer Ed Lachman, Texas becomes a hyperrealistic late capitalist landscape of endless vistas, shopping malls, and prefab metal buildings. In True Stories, Byrne uses his songs to stitch together pop iconography, voodoo rituals, and a singular variety show all in the service of uncovering the rich mysteries that lurk under the surface of everyday experience.
