Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

Hi. I got a tape I wanna play

A weird, wild and wonderful documentary that doesn’t just showcase one of the greatest bands of all time, and the sheer coked-up excess of the 1980s, but also documents the collaborative nature of art, and how beautiful and exhilarating it can be. Demme and Cronenweth’s camera endlessly wanders, landing on band members or backing singers in tantalising close-ups of sweating, smiling individuals; having a once in a lifetime experience, sharing it with all who’ll hear. 

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around
Time isn’t holding up, time isn’t after us
I can’t tell one from the other, will I find you or you find me?
