It's a captivating display of a man who didn't realize he was autistic until many years, and his journey for connection and the euphoria that comes from it. Spike Lee was a great choice to elevate already excellent material, extending the viewpoint beyond one white man and instead helping the film achieve its aims of diversity and inclusion. I Should Watch TV is a particular highlight, with Lee perfectly capturing the effects on stage and highlighting them. When Byrne looks through the curtain simulating a TV screen, he is looking at us, and the moment he steps through it is breathtaking. At its best, this film leaves you with a constant smile on your face.

Fantastic show. Melds a high energy Talking Heads concert with an artistic dreamy Broadway play. The visuals are wacky and eye catching. As for the content - honestly, the highlights for me are the songs I've known (and loved) for years. The newer stuff is kind of all over the place - some good, some of it is filler. The commentary between songs can get a little preachy at times, but it is interesting. The musicians assembled for this are all extremely talented and from all over the world. Bringing them all together is a glorious achievement. It's amazing that they are all playing what you hear untethered by wires. That in and of itself is a technological achievement. Watch this one time while paying attention, and then re-watch numerous times as background music!

If 'Stop Making Sense' is a film of awe, 'David Byrne's American Utopia' is a film of ecstasy - the ecstasy of being alive, of creating, of connecting, of hoping, of healing, of uniting. That ecstasy is in every breathless moment of what we're seeing on stage, and every bombastic moment of the filmm More
