True Stories 12/15/18

The Criterion Collection

It’s a film straight from the incredibly creative & earnestly searching mind of musician-composer David Byrne, complete with marvelous songs, bizarre staging, John Goodman, Spalding Gray, Annie McEnroe, Swoozie Kurtz, Jo Harvey Allen and other weird personalities from the wide expanses of Texas — the kind of people that answer the telephone. Intrepid TFH reviewer Charlie Largent insists that this isn’t a rental car. It’s a privately owned automobile. I think David Byrne and David Lynch need to meet, like Alien vs. Predator. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
