Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★

A more fascinating, vibrant, and visually arresting concert film, you will never find.  The performance starts with David Byrne playing alone on stage. With each new song, another band member joins him, building to the full lineup about a half dozen songs in. Light and shadows, choreography that looks like an exercise routine, a vastly oversized gray suit, and a great lineup of music.  It all combines to form an iconic film by an iconic director about an iconic band. Recommended.
