David Byrne's American Utopia (DVD)
Enhance your purchase
Spike Lee documents the former Talking Heads frontman's brilliant, timely 2019 Broadway show, based on his recent album and tour of the same name. Deeply thoughtful and wildly exuberant, David Byrne's theatrical concert American Utopia lit up Broadway last year with Byrne's trademark mix of rhythm and ideas. Working with a vibrant new band and dancers, the former Talking Heads frontman turned his music into an antidote to America's current divisions. Spike Lee's latest joint brings all this joyous stagecraft to the screen in a vital call to connect with one another, to protest injustice and, above all, to celebrate life.

So, a great concert from Byrne and co, but only four stars for this particular concert video coverage, I’m afraid!
It's a great film and a wonderful record of the show. The energy of the musicians and the audience really shines through. My only regret is that it doesn't include any 'making of' or 'behind the scenes' type featurettes - indeed, there are no extras at all - as I would have enjoyed seeing more about how the show was created.
The sound quality is fantastic.
The cover carrying details of the audio tracks states Dolby Digital only. Thankfully, this is incorrect.
The Blu-ray carries the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, DTS and stereo PCM tracks.
Apart from that, great performance.
One star knocked off for the way it’s shot.
