Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★

Film Club Secret Cinema, Pick by Anchor Rancor

Even being a fan of Talking Heads and having a great time with the music (even if the live "remixes" hit differently), it is undeniable that this is a feat in every single area. The actual stage show is full of energy and every member of the band is putting in the work, especially the enigmatic David Byrne who never lets up. The actual stage is a "character" in this with its simplistic design and constant visual flair. Camerawork and editing are spectacular and I cannot say it looks and sounds great enough. And how could I not mention the BIG BIG SUIT.

If this was a world where Gimme Shelter didn't exist, this would be the definitive concert film. Absolutely spectacular and endlessly rewatchable.
