| Easily one of the year's best films
When the movie opened with David Byrne singing a song to a brain, and said song to said brain made me feel emotional, I knew this was going to be something special.

Absolutely great stuff: a great show with great music filmed exceptionally well. It's also a great companion piece to the classic Stop Making Sense, and honestly on a similar level quality wise.

Who knew Spike Lee and David Byrne could combine their talents so effectively to make something so great? All the Talking Heads songS I was familiar with sounded great, and I really enjoyed the songs in here that I wasn't familiar with too.

If you're a fan of David Byrne you'll love this, and it's so good that even if you weren't already a fan, it might well convert you.
