"True Stories" (Screening) dir. David Byrne
True Stories is an American 1986 film that spans the genres of musical, art, and comedy, directed by and starring David Byrne of the band Talking Heads. It co-stars John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz, and Spalding Gray. Byrne has described the film as, "A project with songs based on true stories from tabloid newspapers. It's like 60 Minutes on acid."
True Stories was released by Warner Bros. in the United States, Canada, Italy, and Sweden in 1986, with limited release elsewhere the following year. Byrne was given much creative control over the motion picture's direction, largely due to the mainstream success of Talking Heads' 1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense.
The film features Byrne as an unnamed, cowboy-hat-wearing stranger who visits the fictional Texas town of Virgil, where he observes the citizens as they prepare for the Celebration of Special-ness to mark the Sesquicentennial (i.e. 150th) anniversary of the founding of the town and the statehood of Texas. The event is being sponsored by the Varicorp Corporation, a local computer manufacturing plant. Byrne's narration breaks the fourth wall many times in the movie, especially while he is driving around town in his Chrysler LeBaron convertible. At other times, sequences are filmed in a documentary style with Byrne's character as host.
Tickets Available at the Door
We are initiating our first Supper Club (sit-down dinner and a movie) with one of the East Side's BBQ kingpins, Micklethwait Craft Meats. We will be serving dinner, a hand selected menu by Tom Micklethwait, when the lights go down for the movie. Tom picked one of our favorite TEXAS movies, "True Stories", the brainchild of David Byrne of the Talking Heads. The movie, set in the tiny town of Virgil, TX has a lot of excitement coming to town for the Celebration of Special-ness to mark the Sesquicentennial (i.e. 150th) anniversary of the founding of the town and the statehood of Texas; with John Goodman and David Byrne as the leads, this quirky film was way ahead of it's time, just like the band that created the soundtrack.
