Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

I'm so grateful that my first experience of this was from an opera house balcony as it was projected onto an enormous screen while people dressed up and in costume danced in the aisles and cheered the performances like it was a live show. This was a holy experience and it emotionally overwhelmed me (also maybe that's from working non-stop at a film festival and sitting down to have a quiet feelings cry in the dark). Also can we talk about how insane the editing is on this film? Maybe one of the best cut films of all time. The cutting is the motion.
