Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

The greatest concert film I've ever seen, the energy in this movie is infectious. David Byrne is so fucking captivating in this, he gives such a physical performance.

What I like about this is that it doesn't have all the normal tropes of a concert movie, there's no up close shots of screaming fans, no "exclusive backstage intrigue." Just the band and the music, and that music just wow. I mean I'd heard some of their songs before but this movie made me a fan as soon as it was over.
