Customer Reviews

Superb! As exciting as the best of the Heads

This movie shows David Byrne up to new and old tricks — working with not one but four choreographers, a team of dancers and musicians, all of whom he pushes relentlessly toward pounding onstage kinetic delight. Concert movie, rock movie, art movie, dance movie, road flick ... this is one for oldsters too heartless for the dry iced, overstuffed excess of lip-smacking pop culture. Unfailingly cool, Byrne and co. burn up the screen. The all-white look and mix of vocals recall the "Big Suit" tour 20-some years ago. But the show-stopping live performances—pulsing, infectious rhythms, new and old—show an artist charging ahead. Any road but nowhere.
