Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

"My God! What have I done?"

My second watch (though I've listened to the album dozens of times).
This movie genuinely astounds me. It's the greatest band of all time performing the greatest album of all time, featuring the greatest song of all time ("Once in a Lifetime" for those wondering). It remains one of the most joyous, energetic, celebratory, and authentic movies ever made, making for an experience that is not only thoroughly fun but also strangely powerful. The whole thing feels like family. The simple truth that nothing ever made is or will ever be this good is something I have to live with, but that's okay because it never falls short of perfect.
