Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

"I try to write about small things. Paper, animals, a house...love is kinda big. I have written a love song though. In this film I sing it to a lamp."

A truly metamorphic piece of art. Film as music. Music as narrative. Narrative as performance. Performance as people. People as emotion. The mind gives way to the body, genius singularity gives way to all encompassing inclusivity, and fear and anxiety give way to joy and camaraderie. The only film where EVERY scene is my favorite scene.
