Dir. David Byrne. 1986, 90 mins. 35mm. With David Byrne, John Goodman, Annie McEnroe.
On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, the town of Virgil, Texas stages a “Celebration of Specialness” to commemorate the event; meanwhile a cowboy-hat-wearing David Byrne takes the opportunity to make the acquaintance of some of the towns more eccentric citizens. Filled with off-kilter tales and mediations on the peculiar shape of modern living and featuring a bevy of musical interludes, True Stories is an absurdist look at small-town America filtered through the ever-inspired mind of the enigmatic Talking Heads front man.
