Description

Talking Heads singer David Byrne plays host to this patchwork of tabloid-inspired tales, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas. Cruising the streets in his cherry-red drop-top, Byrne introduces viewers to the local eccentrics gearing up for the town's 150th anniversary. They include a community leader (Spalding Gray) with a thing for veggies, a woman (Swoosie Kurtz) so lazy she won't leave her bed, a lovelorn country singer (John Goodman) and more! New, restored 4K transfer, supervised by director David Byrne and cinematogra­pher Ed Lachman with 5.1 surround mix.
