Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

I can't get this out of my head.

Initially I wasn't very impressed by the concert film. It's a concert of screen, that's it. But its the lyrics of the album and the visual energy along with the set up that makes this so memorable.

David Byrne is the centrepiece as a whacky, seemingly exasperated man in a giant suit who's only output of what builds inside him is the music. As I was told and made aware of what the theme and story behind the album is, what I had witnessed in the film became to come together in a scary array of vitality.

This is certainly the pinnacle of concert films that it is held up as and I will, without a doubt, be watching it within the next few days. Do yourself a favour and ask yourself, "How did I get here?"
