David Byrne's American Utopia

David Byrne's American Utopia

USA 105 min.

Spike Lee documents the former Talking Heads frontman's brilliant, timely 2019 Broadway show, based on his recent album and tour of the same name.

Between perfect performances of songs from the self-titled album like the catchy ‘Everybody’s Coming to My House’ or ‘Every Day is a Miracle’ over the mantra hits ‘Lazy’ and ‘Blind’, or old numbers of ‘Talking Heads’ like ‘This Must Be the Place ',' Road to Nowhere 'or' Burning Down the House 'to Hugo Ball's merry Dada song' I Zimbra 'and popular singer and actress Janella Monáe's protest' Hell You Talmbout 'in honor of the many innocent African-Americans killed by the police , Byrne frequently communicates with the audience, recounting numerous anecdotes and events that prompted him to create these and other, concert-performed songs.
