David Byrne's American Utopia
Our next Rialto Recommends is Spike Lee's newest film his in performance film of DAVID BYRNE'S AMERICAN UTOPIA filmed at the Hudson Theatre on Broadway in New York. We had the opportunity to see the show when we were in New York last November and loved it. Helmed in elegant and exhilarating style by Spike Lee, DAVID BYRNE'S AMERICAN UTOPIA is a concert film that doubles as a joyously cathartic celebration. A unifying musical celebration that inspires audiences to connect to each other and to the global community. The New York Times said "Some filmed stage shows die on the screen from a sheer lack of visual energy and invention. Lee, a master of the art, uses cinema's plasticity to complement this production, making it come alive in two dimensions." While the Washington Post proclaimed ""AMERICAN UTOPIA" is just the kind of healing, inspiring balm that the audience needs right now. It arrives like an unexpected answer to an unspoken prayer." DAVID BYRNE'S AMERICAN UTOPIA is streaming starting Saturday, October 17th exclusively on HBO and HBOMax HERE. We hope you enjoy this fantastic theatrical experience that we would have loved to presented on our screens had we been able.
