An exuberant and wonderfully oddball stew of deadpan comedy, character drama, music video, and art installation.

Jason Bailey, Flavorwire

 

What makes True Stories so wildly different from the dream-visions of all the quirky and hip directors who followed its example is its vehement refusal to condescend to or mock the people on screen.

Sydney Wegner, Film Freak Central

Absolutely amazing. If there is such a thing as the perfect American movie, this certainly comes close.

David Byrne

1986
Runtime: 
89 minutes

Talking Heads singer David Byrne plays host to this bizarre patchwork of tabloid-inspired tales, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas. Cruising the streets in his cherry-red drop-top, Byrne introduces viewers to the local eccentrics gearing up for the town's 150th anniversary. They include a community leader (Spalding Gray) with a thing for veggies, a woman (Swoosie Kurtz) so lazy she won't leave her bed, a lovelorn country singer (John Goodman) and more!
