Stop Making Sense
(Dir: Jonathan Demme, USA, 1984)
Over the course of three nights at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre in December 1983, filmmaker Jonathan Demme joined creative forces with cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth and Talking Heads... and miracles occurred.
Following a staging concept by singer-guitarist David Byrne, this euphoric concert film transcends that all-too-limited genre to become the one of greatest films of its kind. A guaranteed cure for anyone's blues, it's a celebration of music that never grows old, fuelled by the polyrhythmic pop-funk precision that was a Talking Heads trademark, and lit from within by the geeky supernova that is David Byrne.
