I was lucky enough to catch a 35mm screening of this a few years back. I had no expectations it being Byrne's first directorial effort, and while I agree that it isn't a masterpiece, I thought it was very good and had a unique tone to it. Ed Lachman of course makes this a visual treat, the Pops from Staple Singers cameo was funny, and I also remember being very surprised by the fact that John Goodman could actually sing. Wasn't this also his first leading role?
