Romantic Epics

Be it the grand scale, the inflamed passions, or their universal themes, romantic epics have traditionally made for some of the most irresistible Oscar bait. That trend has been somewhat bucked in recent years, but there's something about the stillness of winter that feels like the proper time to sit down with some globe-spanning, heart-rending sagas.

Directed by David Byrne

Americana, Satire, Ensemble Film, Parody/Spoof - Rated PG - 89 Minutes - 1986

The sole directorial effort of Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, True Stories was reissued by Criterion earlier this year. Byrne heads south to experience the fictious small town of Virgil, Texas, which is populated by borderline Christopher Guest-level characters, decked out with various ambitions and foibles.
