In the realm of cinematic oddities, there are some films that defy easy categorization. True Stories is one of those. It is a genre-bending masterpiece that ignores the line that separates the surreal and the mundane. Hot off the heels of the success of the Talking Heads’ concert film Stop Making Sense directed by the great Jonathan Demme, studios gave David Byrne free rein to do whatever he wanted to do with his movie. Byrne’s total creative control is felt in every scene, as we get to see what small-town life is like from his eyes. This results in an eccentric and surreal romp through rural America.
