Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★½

An exemplary concert film. Jonathan Demme and David Byrne force each viewer to notice the importance of every instrument and band member. Every song is visually distinct, and the film perfectly captures the bundle of paradoxes that is the Talking Heads: loosely spontaneous yet meticulously rehearsed, serious yet playful, unique yet familiar. I can’t imagine a concert movie being more effective than this.
