Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★½

Completely deserves its status as quite possibly the greatest concert movie ever. Just the way it begins: Starting with David Byrne all alone on what could barely be called a stage, with more and more people and instruments joining him with every performance - it's just so much more engaging watching this buils-up.

Add to that Byrne's manic energy and unique stage presence, as well as one terrific song after the next, and you've got an absolute all-timer.
