  • Director Spike Lee and musician David Byrne have created a crowd-pleaser with this spry concert film of Byrne's 2018 tour turned Broadway performance.

    December 19, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It would have been a miraculous celebration of neighbourly love even if it hadn't been released in the middle of a pandemic. But, in these circumstances, that sense of temporary relief feels intoxicating.

    December 17, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Bolstered by Lee's trenchant, intimate direction, Byrne reframes a peerless setlist of songs as a testament to hope and humanity that implores himself and his audience to keep going.

    December 17, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • This is Byrne's show, but it's also Lee's tale of the unexpected. Enjoy.

    December 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A little dose of David Byrne, unless you're a devoted Talking Heads fan, can go a long way.

    December 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While no Stop Making Sense, it's still thrilling to see the singer and his 11-strong band, barefoot in their grey wool suits, romp through Talking Heads favourites, solo hits and a churning Janelle Monae protest song.
