True Stories ★★★★★

a fucking masterpiece. the more i watch byrne do his thing, the funnier it is that i used to confuse him and david lynch without any real knowledge of each other, because i do think they do a lot of similar things– just with polar opposite auras about their work. could've switched names with american utopia and worked just as well, but that's more a credit to byrne's consistency in his work/message. i could write 1,000 words on how loving and celebratory and quietly funny and sarcastic this movie is, and one day on a subsequent viewing i probably will.

i'd like to believe david byrne has seen Joe Pera Talks With You and he loves it. :)
