Academy Award-winning director Spike Lee's acclaimed filmed version of David Byrne's American Utopia made its world premiere opening the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival and is currently streaming on HBO Max. The film has been called "a life-affirming, euphoria-producing, soul-energizing sing-along protest film that's asking us to rise up against our own complacency" (IndieWire) and "an all-time-great concert film" (Vanity Fair). The A.V. Club said, "David Byrne and Spike Lee found the spectacle in the performers simply performing."
